As a kid, I was always excited about holi. My favorite was playing with colors with my friends and cousins, water guns, and water balloons to splash and smear colored powder on each other.
No celebration would be complete without yummy food. I remember my mom used to prepare snacks, and mithai to feast on. Friends and family used to get together and celebrate Holi, play with colors, and enjoy delicious food.
