My husband and I are from Boston and have been married for 4 years. We are in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh, for our first visit to India together, and I am incredibly grateful and fortunate for this experience. 😊
Today, we woke up around 8am and immediately joined my husband’s parents and brothers for breakfast. At breakfast, my father in law performed a ritual of puja over a few holi sweets and offered them at the table and we ate them. After that, we put mustard oil all over our faces, arms and legs to help with color removal later. Lol .
We put colored powder on each other, asked our parents for blessings and took pictures in the garden. It was a wonderful morning.
