        Truth be told, finding out half the country is susceptible to cult mentality was distressing enough.. but the repercussions will be felt for decades to come. Should have to listened to my husband when he suggested we move to Netherlands years ago. But I guess it's never too late.

        One of my students accidentally went to a local nudist beach and told the class she got the shock of her life seeing one of the teachers there, and a male teacher at that. Irreversible burnt-in images in her brain...

        Sure, out of embarrassment. Even common things can make some people uncomfortable, take menstruation, or defecating for example. Perfectly natural. Just a couple weeks ago, some people commented on my son who was playing and talking to himself, thinking it was rather funny instead of normal.

        Also, not everyone knows that talking to yourself is normal or common. There's still a stigma about it that people think is related to mental illness.

        I grew up and still live in Temple. It’s a city but the conservative small town mentality still sneaks in. Even people who like rock and rap music tend to still vote for Abbott and Cruz.

        It originates from a Gita story of arrogant King Hiranyakashipu who thought he should be worshipped over Vishnu and his son who disagreed. His evil aunt Holika tried to trick the son into being burned alive in a pyre, but instead was protected by Vishnu and Holika was burned instead. So it's about victory of good over evil ultimately. But also later about celebration of spring and joy, etc.

        Isn't it also traditionally the Wedding anniversary of Ram and Sita?

        I spent a lot of my youth in the ISKCON Krishna temple, and got really involved. It was over ten years ago, the last time I went, so I don't remember as much anymore, but I kind of remember some of the stories, and I can still sing a few bhajans by heart.

        Do you say Haribol, or is that just a Hare Krishna thing?

        No, their wedding is celebrated on Vivaha Panchami, different holiday. Holi is actually associated with Krishna and his lover Radha...

        We don't say haribol but I know it's not only relegated to Hare Krishnas
