For designers, marketers, and those who work in the creative sphere, holidays are always an opportunity to get your audience involved. Luckily, the first month of spring is full of newsworthy events. March 8th is International Women’s Day, March 17th — St. Patrick’s Day, while March 20th is the equinox — the time when one can finally say: spring has come.

Another great occasion and a festive event is on March 20th, also known as the beginning of Holi festival of colors. Originally deriving from India, it rejoices the victory of good over evil, but across the globe, it is often referred to as the spring festival.

It is already warm outside, nature is blooming and it is high time to partake in the two-day celebration of Holi. Check out the event at your city or book a flight to India and get prepared for the brightest festival ever.
