“Let the enlightening bonfire illuminate all the darkness and sorrows of your life and refill it with the warmth of love, care and happiness.”
Lohri is a popular winter Punjabi folk festival celebrated primarily in Northern India. It is believed by many that the festival marks the passing of the winter solstice, and is a traditional welcome of longer days. The ancient significance of the festival is it being a winter crop season celebration. The festival is celebrated by lighting bonfires, eating festive food, dancing and collecting gifts. Lohri rituals are performed, with the accompaniment of special Lohri songs. People wear their brightest clothes and come to dance the bhangra and gidda to the beat of the dhol. Sarson da saag and makki di roti is usually served as the main course at a Lohri dinner. The festival brings joy and happiness in the air and marks the beginning of the festive season in India.
