Holi is a colourful, messy and chaotic party that celebrates the arrival of Spring in the Hindu calendar. For many it has become less synonymous with religion and more of one giant paint ball fight as chalky bright powder is thrown over everyone, and everything, in celebration. Holi is celebrated on the day after the full moon in the month of March as per the Hindu calendar.
Known as the festival of colours, Holi is a much bigger deal in the north of India than it is in the south.
