Every festival has some etiquettes. So does Holi. To enjoy the Holi festival in a friendly manner with everyone around you need to follow Holi etiquette. Let’s discuss these in detail.
Holi Etiquette 2020:
Holi is a religious festival for the Hindu community but people from all religions take part in these celebrations. But we should not generalize that everyone loves celebrating Holi. So we must follow some basic etiquette.
Everyone doesn’t like Holi:
Holi is a festival on which everyone likes to play with colors. But not everyone, in real sense. It is maybe because someone doesn’t like to get filthy in colors. Or maybe people have allergies due to the use of colors. So when it is Holi, don’t throw colors on others without their permission. If it will cause them some health issues you will be the cause. And surely you don’t want to be the culprit.

Don’t include cars in color play:
There is no point in throwing color balloons or rotten eggs on the cars. Because you don’t know in what emergency or tense situation someone is driving that car that you hit for the sake of pleasure. Plus it can be a cause of severe accidents. As the driver will suddenly try to stop the car and the sharp breaks can cause a collision of many vehicles and many people will be injured. And surely you don’t want to be the culprit again.

Make sure the target is up for it:
While you attempt to throw a bucket full of mud on anyone or throw someone in a muddy pool, make sure they are ready. Even you have to make sure if the target is your friend. Because everyone is not in the mood always for such hilarious things. And this limited time fun is not as important as your friendship.
It is Holi and Bhang is a must. But making intoxicating Bhang and drinking it too much is not a must. So you should control your drinking when it is Holi. If you don’t you will lose control over your body and most probably you will do some misadventure in fun.
It is wrong to waste a lot of water for the sake of enjoying watercolor play on Holi. The whole world is facing a water shortage issue and wasting water this way can never be justified.
So wherever you want to celebrate Holi 2020, follow the etiquettes written above. Take care of everyone around you while you are enjoying it. It will surely add a color of satisfaction to your Holi.
