3.What is non-religious Holi?  From Dr. Getika Verma

Holi is also called” the Festival of Colors”. Holi is a popular springtime celebration observed on the last full moon of the lunar month. Participants traditionally throw bright, vibrant powders at friends and strangers alike as they celebrate the arrival of spring.

The festival of Holi can be regarded as a celebration of the Colors of Unity & Friendship - an opportunity to forget all differences and indulge in fun. The idea being that all people are created equal and to not distinguish between people based on any difference we see (with color smeared faces –everyone looks the same!!). It is also a day that people forget differences/arguments and let go of the past and renew friendships and start afresh.
4. Holi Celebration of Color (dry powder only-no water) with music and dancing!

HOW TO PLAY WITH THE COLORS
Holi Celebation at TIDE Youth LEAD 2012 Conference in Boston
 Grab handfuls of different colors, and smear all over nearest face, self-included. Try aiming for friends, and family, though complete strangers on the field wouldn't mind either. Try not to smile too wide when they return the favor pink teeth don't suit everyone!!!
