Moshpix: Every spring, Hindus celebrate the festival of Holi on the day after the full moon in March. The celebration is designed to be fun in nature, with songs, dance, general chaos and lots of colored powder. The Hindu Temple of Greater Chicago held its own Holi celebration in Lemont where you didn't have to subscribe to Hindu teachings in order to have a good time.
