Hey sweet peas 🙂
Yesterday I went to the Holi festival in Christchurch with my best friend Anju, and I honestly had so much fun! 🙂 <3 Holi is the Indian paint festival, and (from what I gather) is about celebrating diversity! I thought that was so cool, and honestly I got that feeling from the festival.
At the festival you get paint (it was kind of a powdery paint – which was honestly nicer than real paint haha!) and you can chuck it at other people. It seemed kind of uncomfortable at first throwing paint at strangers, but after a while we were all so covered in paint that everyone just seemed like one, all the same but different. And that was when I fully appreciated that feeling of celebrating diversity. Seeing everyone was covered in paint, but all different colours, patterns… it was honestly so cool! 🙂 <3
I finished the day mostly green 🙁 but it was funny watching other peoples reactions as we walked around town afterwards! We even got on a bus, and went to the mall for lunch lol! 😀
Have any of you been to Holi? Have you been to any festivals like this? What are your thoughts about celebrating diversity? I would love to hear your thoughts, as always 🙂 <3
Until next time 🙂
