Lohri

Lohri (January)

Lohri, Lohri travel, Lohri of Punjab, Fair and Festival of Punjab, Punjab fairs festivals tourCelebrated on the 13th day of January, Lohri is a festival of enthusiasm and verve and marks the culmination of the chilly winter. In true spirit of the Punjabi culture, men and women perform Bhangra and Giddha, popular Punjabi folk dances, around a bonfire. Enthusiastic children go from house to house singing songs and people oblige them kindly by giving them money and eatables as offering for the festival.

Late in the evening, people meet around the bonfire and throw sweets (gachak and rewri), puffed rice and popcorn (as holy offering) into it and sing folk songs. Lohri is also an auspicious occasion to celebrate a newly born baby's or a new bride's coming in the family. The day ends with a traditional feast of sarson da saag and makki di roti and a dessert of rau di kheer (a dessert made of sugarcane juice and rice)
