Holi in Slow Motion

Holi was celebrated just a few weeks ago, and in my wanderings around the webs, I found this awesome video of the celebration in slow motion. I’d never heard of Holi before last year, and I find it a really beautiful way to engage with the community and herald the warmer temperatures. Variable posted this video right after last year’s Holi, and it’s a gorgeous take—reminding us all to soak in everything we can and live in the moment.

Per Wikipedia, “Holi is a spring festival also known as the festival of colours and the festival of love…Holi celebrations start with a Holika bonfire on the night before Holi where people gather, sing and dance. The next morning is a free-for-all carnival of colours, where everyone plays, chases and colours each other with dry powder and coloured water, with some carrying water guns and coloured water-filled balloons for their water fight.”
