It's A Small World
A visitor to my blog from India by the name of Arti posted on her blog last week some children in India celebrating Holi, an Indian holiday celebrating the arrival of Spring. I had never heard of it before, but it sure looked like a rollicking good time! During Holi, people throw brightly colored chalky powders over each other... kinda like they threw pies in those old silent film comedies. Talk about pure and silly fun!! So last Sunday, I pick up our local newspaper (yes, I'm old and still read the newspaper. I'm so old that I use to be a newspaper delivery boy!) and there were photos in one of the sections showing Hindu-American kids celebrating Holi in my hometown of Sacramento! The USA is made up of so many immigrants from all over our planet, and I love it. We are truly a melting pot... e pluribus unum.
