Monday the 13th of March is Holi and as much as we are trying, the excitement on our faces is difficult to hide, considering the long weekend is approaching. So for all those people who have plans for Holi, your weekend seems very colorful and sorted. Just in case you are wondering how you should spend this long weekend, take a look at our Weekend Planner: Holi Edition to take ideas on where to go. For all those who don't intend to celebrate Holi, well, an extra chutti is still a chutti at the end of the day so why not make the most of it. Here are a few suggestions for spending your three-day-long weekend in the most fun way!
Make a short trip to some place nearby
It's always a good idea to plan a short trip when you have a three-day weekend. If you are someone living in Mumbai or Pune, you have plenty of options like Lonavala, Karjat, Igatpuri or Daman where you can easily drive down. For all the other adventurous people, have you taken a look at our events section yet? Hyderabadians, there's horse riding taking place near you and Delhiites, are you up for some Air Safari? Not just these cities, there's a lot of camping and trekking activities happening around your city as well, which you might want to try.
Pursue your hobby
We know how hard it is to complete a book with that tight schedule over the weekdays. And on normal two-day weekends, it must get so confusing. There's the partying and the sleep to catch on but you also want to read. Well then, thank god for this extra day. Not just reading, this extra day is good for pursuing any hobby you wish. You can attend the pottery or dance workshop happening in Bengaluru or try your hand at singing at the Voice Culture Studio in Chennai.
As we all know, the much-awaited Badrinath Ki Dulhania has finally released this Friday, which we're sure nobody wants to miss. Logan has been getting good reviews as well. So this holiday makes a perfect occasion to plan a movie date. Also, if there are movies you have been dying to watch or a TV series that has been on your mind since a very long time, atch up on whatever you have been missing all this while on Monday.
Party harder Sunday night
You know what's different about this week? You can party not just all night on Saturday but also on Sunday because guess who's got no work on Monday? You! So go ahead, make those Sunday night plans without any worries. A pocket-friendly and a wise idea would be to keep or attend a house party. Not only will it be economical but also smart since the whole world is going to be partying with colors, you might want to avoid the chaos and have fun in the comfort of your home.
Meet a few friends
What's a Holi without friends? As much as you try to catch up with friends, it can be a little difficult to do everything over a two-day weekend. So if you are not the party kind or the reader or even the movie kind, then catching up with long lost friends who are also not playing Holi is something that you should really consider. Because leaving them alone on Holi is morally wrong, isn't it? Also, you never know when you will meet them next. If you're struggling to make plans, Mumbai-ites, you can try attending the food crawl this weekend. People in Kolkata, if you want to do something fun, you can go for the Breakout-Paintball war, which gives entry at a reasonable price. Whatever city you may be in, there are plenty options for all of you.
Have a great weekend!
