Lohri is a festival of harvest. This seasonal celebration falls on the thirteenth day of January in North India. The states of Punjab and Haryana generally observe the festival. Almost all communities of these states hold festivities with much fun and feasting. It is an evening festival. After the sunset a huge bonfire is collected and lit.
People of all ages gather around the bonfire in gay clothes arid begin to dance joyfully. In the bonfire, sugarcane stalks and parched rice goods are thrown. The menfolk perform their foot-taping cBhangra’ dance. They move to the beat of the dholaks but the women enact the more gentle ‘Gidda’ dance. People offer rewards such as peanuts, popcorn, podded rice and other sweets to one another. Lohri is considered as a goodluck day for farmers. The formers celebrate a better harvest and get ready for the next sowing season. On this day, children are free to engage in flying kites. Lohri is a fun-filled festival for everyone.
