From chasing cheese down a hill to throwing water at Buddha statues, people have thought of many an inventive way to celebrate springtime . See our six favourite spring festivals below, each a little bit out of the ordinary, each completely worth joining in on… 1. Holi, Delhi Takes place : last full moon day of lunar month Phalguna (February/March) Next one : 8th March 2012 Prepare to be covered in colour: northern India’s spring-welcoming festival Holi finishes with day-long street parties where you sing, dance and throw water and pigment powder over each other.
"Bridesmaids" has become something of a cultural phenomenon. The Judd Apatow-produced comedy had quite a bit of early buzz as a referendum on female-driven comedies, but since its release two weeks ago, the focus on the Kristin Wiig-starring comedy seems to have been shifted from "a funny movie about women" to simply "a funny movie." And as with many funny movies starring actors skilled in improvisation, such as Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Ellie Kemper, Melissa McCarthy ("Gilmore Girls") and Wendi McLendon-Covey ("Reno 911!"), much was left on the cutting room floor. Thankfully (for us), Funny Or Die has released over three minutes of outtakes, including an extended "sex scene" with Jon Hamm (which, along with some language, makes this video NSFW).

This week we thought we'd loosen things up with a recipe that's a little less serious and a whole lot more blue. The Blue Hawaii, a mix of rum, pineapple juice, and blue Curaçao, conjures up Waikiki resorts, Elvis movies, and tiki mugs with paper umbrellas.
