I Gave In

I'm pretty sure that when you sign your contract to go to BYU it says somewhere that you have to go to The Festival of Colors, yes I'm pretty sure that it must be in the fine print at the bottom, because really every spring there is a mass exodus of Mormons (HA!) that go to a Hindu festival. I resisted for so many years. It's always been such a "Provo" thing to do. But when my sisters came into town this weekend we all realized that we're all BYU graduates yet none of us had once been to The Festival of Colors. SACRELIGIOUS I TELL YOU! We were breaking the honor code I'm sure of it! So we gave in, and partied like it was 1995...acid wash jeans and all. Okay no acid wash jeans, you got me, but we did end the day with a Bollywood dance sesh.

* And for those of you that were there, what was with the lyrics to their songs? And I quote, "Baby Krishna Very Very Naughty" Repeat that 100 times and you'll have sung the song. No.Joke.

  7. Haha this looks like so much fun! And they're songs are very interesting, indeed. When I was in Kathmandu (Nepal) one of the local favorites just said "Look at me in bed" for about 5 minutes, and that was the whole song. Needless to say, my mission team leaders didn't find that as funny as my friends and I did haha!

  12. Hmmmm I'm infamous for changing lyrics so it's definitely possible. But I confirmed with all of my sisters (which is pretty much the law) and we all voted baby:)

  16. That looks like a lot of fun! I saw on another blog someone did a 5k run where they threw colours like that at you the whole time. It looked like a fun way to do a 5k.
