Holi is known as the "festival of colors" and celebrates the arrival of spring after a long winter. It is also a time for building relationships through play and laughter. Although primarily celebrated in India and Nepal, Holi is observed in many other countries throughout Southeast Asia and around the world.

The festival is celebrated by throwing colored powders and water at others. The colors used are culturally symbolic:

Red - union & purity
Pink - friendliness & happiness
Purple - devotion to self & spirit
Blue - power & passion
Green - vitality & rebirth
Yellow - sincerity & piety
Orange - strength & courage

Originally, the colors were made from Neem, Kumkum, Haldi and Bilva—medicinal herbs which were simultaneously used in the playful festival as a means of preventing springtime ailments.

Today, many popular US events have been inspired by Holi's colorful festivities including the Color Run 5K and the Festival of Colors Music Tour.
