Spring means different things to different people. In parts of Poland they chuck straw dolls into the river to symbolize the end of winter’s wrath.
In Switzerland they burn winter at the stake in the shape of a snowman – known as the Boogg - stuffed with explosives (don’t we all?).
And in India, Hindus celebrate Holi by hurling vivid coloured powders at each other to symbolize connecting with each other and letting go of past hardships.
