Happy Holi 2018! Today we celebrate the arrival of spring and the end of winter with the Hindu Festival of Colors known as Holi. Today, celebrants in India and across the world will participate in a day of "throwing colors" at each other in celebration of the day.
Like the Jewish Purim holiday before it, Holi begins the night before, since the Hindu calendar, like the Hebrew calendar, begins days on the night before. The evening beginning Holi is called Purnima, which means full Moon day.
