Holi, India Also known as the festival of colors and love, this vivid spring festival brings all people together. The social barriers break completely, friend or stranger, rich or poor, men or women, children or elders, Hindu or not, all people come together to celebrate the end of the winter season. And most important to celebrate that everyone is the same!

From the start of Carnival on January 6 through Mardi Gras at the beginning of February, you'll find one of these sweet, color-splashed king cakes in just about every office break room and at every family gathering. Did you get "the baby"? That means you bring the next cake — and we have just the cake you'll want to bring.
