Lohiri

13 January

Lohri

Lohri is one of the most zestful festivals of Punjab and always falls on 13th January. Lohri is essentially the festival of agriculturists. In January the weather is cold and what better way than to light the bonfire, which forms the essence and focal point of Lohri. The dancers perform Bhangra around fire. The boys and girls collect material for the bonfire from individual houses by singing special Lohri songs. Women apply Mehndi on their hands and feet. First Lohri for a newly wed bride is a very special occasion. She gets lots of presents. Similarly the first Lohri for a new –born child is also celebrated with all the family members showering lots of gifts for the baby and the mother.
