Join us on March 13 & 14 at the Colby cafeteria for a celebratory meal that represents the culture and tradition.
Holi, which dates back to the 4th century, is one of India’s most joyful celebrations. It offers an opportunity for joy and a new life, and to honor the transition to spring after a long winter. To celebrate this transition, residents joyfully shower entire villages and cities with bright colored powder.
Each color has its own meaning and represents its own wish. For example, red symbolizes love and fertility, while green represents new beginnings. After the celebration of colors, family and friends gather and celebrate – as most of us do – at the dinner table. They eat traditional foods like chana masala and Indian sweets.
To celebrate Holi and our caregivers who celebrate it, join us on March 13 and 14 at the Colby cafeteria for a celebratory meal that represents the culture and tradition.
“Holi is a time to reach out with the colors of joy. It is the time to love and forgive. It is the time to express the happiness of being loved and to be loved through colors.”
