Holi celebrations began a week in advance for children, where small kids used to hide on terraces or balconies and splash oncoming people with water and water balloons. It irritated them but then “Bura Na Mano Holi Hai” was the defence.
On the day of Holi, people wake up early and start prepping for Holi celebrations. They smear each other in colour pigments/gulaal, spray water on each other and enjoy a range of snacks to mark the oncoming of spring.
