Indian Holi Festival (where You Throw Colors At People), Is It As Fun As In The Pictures?

    I'm sure you guys have seen Holi pictures online, where people throw around different colors of sand (?) and look like they are just genuinely having fun. What about you guys who actually attended it? Any problems you had with the event? Any advice you want to give those who are interested in going?

    I've also often wondered about these kind of festivals aswell, but from the point of view that on the pictures and videos we see, a lot of the people celebrating appear to be just tourists.

    While it always looks like everyone is having fun, for the people who are actually celebrating the festival itself, are they not a little upset sometimes that a religious festival is almost hijacked by people who just want to have fun, rather than respect what its really about?

    Holi is truly fascinating, trust me. The fun part can't be properly expressed in words, you got to experience it yourself to believe it. The celebrations know no bounds. Out of the world would be a gross understatement, to be frank.

    As is the case with any festival the substance disappears and the form remains. Holi is no different. It is supposed to be a situation of good over evil - a festival of love and the colours denote that. One is expected to forgive each other and become friends again. It is also the beginning of spring.
    Those who indulge in it truly enjoy the experience. Some restrictions however have been imposed to take care of any harm done by using unsafe colours.
