Holi at Upper Iowa

Exactly a month ago, Holi came to Upper Iowa. Holi is a Hindu spring festival, usually held in March and since we have a lot of Nepali students, this is our second year holding it. Our version is different in that it is much smaller, doesn’t have the original religious significance, and is held a month or so later. This is because Iowa in March is usually still too cold to be outside for a long time.

The main draw of Holi is the colors, specifically throwing colored powder at friends and strangers alike. It’s about having fun, and boy did the students (and staff) have fun.
