Like most countries, Egypt celebrates the coming of spring with a festival called the Sham Al Naseem. It is also named by locals as the ‘Sniffing the Breeze’ festival. Celebrated by everyone with a gathering of families, citizens head out to historical sites and beaches with packed picnics. Streets come alive with dancers, vendors and performers – a sight to behold. Visit Egypt in April for this heart-warming take on Holi.
