Lo aa gayi Lohri re.. Happy Lohri

Lohri is one of the favourite festival celebrated by Punjabi community.This festival is a sign to show that winter is moving back & spring is about to arrive. It is one of the biggest harvest festival.

Lohri festival is one of the most joyful occasions for every Punjabi , especially for those families where there has been a recent marriage or the birth of a son.

The key feature of Lohri is bonfire. The festival starts when all the family member forms a circle around the fire and starts revolving around it. People sing Traditional Punjabi songs during nighttime while dancing around the bonfire. One of the known song is " सुंदर मुंदिरये.. "

It calls for family get-together & lavish dinners with sarso ka saag & Makki ki roti. People also distribute popcorn, peanuts , sesame seeds ( til ) ke laddoo, gur ( jaggery ) , gajak, revri etc..

Lohri of North India coincides with Pongal in Tamil Nadu , Makar Sankranthi in Bengal , Tai Pongal in Kerala, all celebrated on the auspicious day of Makar Sankranthi..

I would personally wish all the people reading this blog Happy Lohri..May the sweetness of Gur & rewri at Lohri , remain with you forever!!
