No wonder the Twenty Thirteen WordPress theme ignited so much discussion. It’s opinionated, bold, but still leaves your content to do the talking. It’s clearly a 180-degree turn from all the previous default themes and blandness we’ve become accustomed to.

It’s orange as it gets, folks, there’s no point in denying its Buddhist heritage. But hey, we realize not everyone is fond of meditation or agrumes, so we’ve made other flavors of that awesomeness called Twenty Thirteen.

Meet Holi. Holi, these are the WordPress fans.

Holi is a Twenty Thirteen’s child theme. It comes in 9 different color schemes and we plan on adding some more.

If you’re an end-user, you’re going to like the fact that Twenty Thirteen and its colorful child theme, Holi, have been created using WordPress best practices so they’re compatible with all other WordPress products coded in the same manner. All the functionality you want and need can be added using plugins, so you can switch to a different theme at any time, without worry.

Holi requires you to have Twenty Thirteen and WordPress 3.6 installed in order to run.

The theme has the following 9 color schemes, which you can set in the Theme Customizer:

  • Blue
  • Gray
  • Pink
  • Purple
  • Red
  • Sepia
  • Turquoise
  • Yellow

We’ve all waited so long for the new WordPress 3.6 (Oscar) update. It’s a great update with a really nice default theme. While the most of you liked the looks of it, you might have soon realized that with its strong presence, no way your visitors would not recognize it.

Holi is here to change that.

If you’re a developer, you should know that Holi is built using Sass, so you can add more color-schemes and customize its looks easily. We welcome you to dress Holi into different colors on GitHub.
