Fanshawe Student Union helps celebrate Holi

Holi, also known as the festival of colours, is a Hindu festival and is typically celebrated in areas such as India and Nepal and marks the beginning of spring and good over evil.
One main aspect of the festival is to throw coloured powder into the air, leaving a person splattered in an array of colours. This specific tradition not only symbolizes the coming of spring, but also love between Krishna and Radha in the Hindu religion.
The FSU helped students celebrate the festival by hosting its own festival of colours, which included the tossing of colours, as well as food, music and dancing.
Students came in full force, crowding Forwell hall, while dancing and singing along to the music. Students were smiling, laughing, taking photos and genuinely having a good time celebrating Holi away from home.
