    Weird festivals/traditions from your country

    It was Holi yesterday, Dhuleti today.

On first day, a bonfire is lit at night to signify the burning of Holika. On the second day, known as Rangapanchami or Dhulandi, people go around throwing colours at each other and meet and have fun. A special drink called thandai or bhang is also consumed sometimes, which actually contains small amounts of marijuana to make the festival more enjoyable. People invite each other to their houses for feasts and celebrations.
    This is what results on this festival:

    Maybe. But there's a similarity there, for sure.

    I went for the pooja for Holi, just didn't celebrate Dhuleti. Haven't for the past 3-4 years. Not sure why. Just don't like it anymore. It's not the same these days. It's supposed to be played with "gulaal" rather than dyes, mud or cow dung!

    Then you should have played wet holi instead of the gulal variety!

    Nothing. But I'm sure that's not what you had in your mind, when you said that.
