Holi has always been a favourite holiday of mine because I got to celebrate with my huge family… missing home! Love you guys! 🥰 #HappyHoli
Priyanka articulated her merry and tender feelings about the country of her birth in light of the Holi festival. Holi is an occasion marked by the throwing around of colours and also one where people physically applying colours on one another.
"Today, India is one giant, colourful street party! Holi is so vibrant and So.Much.Fun," she said.
She was very nostalgic about the festival and talked about the joys and frolic shared between her neighbours when she was in India. "There's something magical about neighbours and neighbourhoods coming together over with food, music and gulaal!" she said on her social media post. Gulaal is a crimson coloured powder which is thrown about and which people put on each other during the fun-filled festival.
Priyanka was genuinely homesick. "Holi has always been a favourite holiday of mine because I got to celebrate with my huge family… missing home!" she said with melancholic nostalgia.
