Holi is the Holiday I'd most like to petition people to celebrate closer to home. It's a festival celebrated in parts of India and Sri Lanka marking the beginning of spring by knocking the grayscale of winter out with splashes and tosses of vibrant colors. People arm themselves with pigmented powders and dyed water and basically start a huge, neighborhood-wide, color-me-happy-war. I want that here.
Wait just a second! There will be a Holi celebration in Queens on March 7th. Go forth!
