After the festival the streets are cleaned by means of numerous hoses, and people go to wash or river. or in specially equipped holiday showers.

7. Festival of colors (Holi) . This holiday is celebrated every moon in India (new Delhi) and it is devoted to the coming of spring and the expulsion of evil. During the celebration people watered each other with various paints, colored powders or just colored water.

People are divided into 9 teams and they throw each other these citrus. If someone doesn’t want to play, and just want to look, he should wear a red hat, then no one will touch him.
