Spring Rainbow in New York City

 ::: Before Holi Colors Were tossed:::

As I get older I realize how rich in culture and life New York is filled with and how much I've yet to take in.

  :::After Holi Colors :::
Last week me and my best friend went to Holi Hai in NYC. If you don't know; Holi is a Hindu observation and festival welcoming in the Spring! People celebrate the melting away of winter by throwing colored powder and water at each other and generally come together in good cheer.

Though I may not fully grasp the religious or even cultural elements fully; I did get and understand and experience the coming together of people of all races, genders and backgrounds. We're all different skin colors and we may lead different lives yet we're all the same. We're even more the same covered in rainbow powder. It was beautiful and fun.

Smiling and laughing with strangers can be a rare thing in the city but when we do come together it's beautiful and soooo necessary with all that goes on in the world.

Do you have any Spring traditions? What are your favorite events in your city?
