Holi Google Logo Celebrates India’s Festival Of Colors On Google India’s Homepage
While many will see a St. Patrick’s Day logo on Google’s homepage today, Google India users will see a Holi logo to mark India’s spring festival of colors.
Celebrating the arrival of spring, Holi events include a Holika bonfire on the eve of the holiday with singing and dancing. Holi festivals are hosted openly in the streets with everyone dousing each other in a rainbow of colors, using dry powder or water guns and water balloons filled with colored-water.
The actual date of Holi varies every year as it coincides with the approach of the vernal equinox, but usually takes place in March. Observed as a public holiday in India, Holi celebrations have spread as far as Europe and North America.
