Holi is a typical Indian festival - lots of color, lots of noise, lots of festive chaos and inevitably lots of cheer and fun.
You can get away with things on Holi that you can't get away with on normal days.
You can get drunk with/in front of your folks
You can fool around with that girl/guy you liked for ages (you can even grope, it's all a part of the fun, colored anonymity provides so much leeway!)
You can binge
You can escape the confines of your home for the entire day and nobody will notice
You can slather your enemy with toxic oil paint and say stuff like 'bura na mano holi hai!'(don't mind, its holi after all)....

Holi can be so much fun!!

This is the Google Doodle today:

If you are a non-Indian and want to get in the fun, find some Indians (they are everywhere!!) and get into the colorful frenzy! It's all a part of the wonderful festival and it's rituals.

Happy Holi to you! I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I had never heard of this before. It looks like fun...minus being covered head to toe in the reddish orangey stuff! :)
