Live Colorfully: Happy Holi!

Wednesday, March 20, 2019 4:00:00 PM

Holi (pronounced HOH lee) is a Hindu festival celebrated predominantly in India and Nepal that honors the arrival of spring. Holi is a joyous time in which participants celebrate love, friendship, forgiveness, humor and more. Everyone should celebrate the values that Holi emphasizes. The colorful springtime festival reminds us of all the ways each individual—their strengths, likes, hobbies, opinions, and more—helps to create a colorful, diverse, and unique community.
