Let’s welcome the festival of joy and color: Basic Holi Ettiquetes everyone should follow
You might have heard that some girls do not like holi.With the passage of time, Holi has lost its essence. A lot of people like to stay indoors. But have you ever thought why? After all, this festival comes with tremendous joy and fun. Well, unfortunately, some set of people get an opportunity to harass girls in name of Holi.
People should understand that playing Holi or not should be entirely one’s choice. You can not force anyone whether it’s boy or girl to play Holi.
So, today we are going to share some Holi Ettiquetes with you and everyone should follow it.
- Do not presume everyone likes Holi: This is kind of obvious but needs to be stated for obvious reasons. We get it, you are high on the whole festive fervor bit. Not everyone is. When stepping out on the day of Holi–with your packets of color and water balloons–do not just throw yourself on the first “clean” person you see. Approach them and ask if they do not mind getting color smeared on their face.Holi may soon be over; frustration lasts a long, long time! Seek permission first. Nothing wrong
- Do not throw dirty balloons on random people: Water balloons, sure. Throw away, Holi Hai! But any balloon that contains anything but water–muck, mud, dirty water, paint, soapy water (no, the idea here is not to give you ideas)–keep them exclusively for family and friends. And please remember that don’t throw balloons at the height it might hurt someone badly. It can create serious injuries to both the genders.

- Cars are not your targets: Throwing water balloons at random cars passing by is really not as much fun as it sounds. You do not really end up getting anyone wet, and it is really no satisfaction unless the car passes by at 100km/h. All you end up doing is frustrating the car owner. Just more cleaning!
- Before picking up a friend and throwing them in the pool (of mud, maybe), make sure he/she is up for it: Given the number of bodily problems we are all living with, it is probably a safe idea to warn your friend (in jest) beforehand, if you intend on doing the noble deed, that is.
- Go slow on the alcohol: Given how crazy Holi is by default, you do not need huge doses of alcohol to lower inhibitions further or reach a point where you’re not entirely in control of your body. That’d just leave a bad taste. So, go easy on the drinks, and drink enough water in between.
