Who wouldn’t love taking a day to fling handfuls of colored powder and water at friends and strangers alike in a jubilant celebration of spring, forgiveness, and renewal? Perhaps that’s why the ancient Hindu festival known as Holi is celebrated not only in South Asia where it originated, but throughout the world as well.

Luckily for us, TravelPod bloggers risk their cameras during the color fest and have grabbed some great shots for us over the years!

If you have any great photos of Holi, be sure to start up a TravelPod blog and share! We may be able to feature some more Holi shots in a future post.
