Hey everybody! So this past weekend I got to do something I've been looking forward to for a while, Sam and I went to the Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago to celebrate Holi. Holi is the festival of colors held on the last full moon of the winter season. There were cultural programs and a bonfire, but the centerpiece was a big outdoor dance party where people threw powdered colors at each other. It was a big, fun, boisterous mess and everybody at the Temple was so friendly and welcoming to the literally hundreds of people that turned out for the event. I can't wait to bring more friends back next year. Welcome spring!

|The tshirt aftermath. The color washed right out, which was actually kind of sad. They would have made a cool souvenir.|
