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.

How to prepare for Holi celebration
Get armed with dry colours
Powders are an integral part of the Holi festival of colors. Usually, powders are made from natural sources, plants and herbs, for example. Green is made from leaves, yellow and red come from turmeric, and black is charcoal. Order it from Amazon or make it yourself and go on an adventure.
Take a handful of a color you like
Once you are at the festival celebration, all the people around you will be smearing and throwing colors over you. Grab a color you like and join the fun.
Smear the powder on people’s faces
Participating in Holi and standing aside is impossible. Everyone smears powder on each other. Be generous to your friends or people you meet and reward them with an entire color spectrum of powder.
Dance, sing, and have fun
Holi is one of those celebrations when you forget about the religious background and dance, sing, and enjoy yourself.
