Adopted Traditions

Its a beautiful thing when one culture adopts another’s tradition. Holi, originally known as Holika, is an Indian festival which celebrates the triumph of good over evil. It is celebrated by throwing brightly colored powder. In Utah, thousands of miles from India Holi is celebrated. It’s estimated over 40,000 people join in. Though i’d happily throw powder at people for fun, its nice to have a tradition backing me up.
