Lohri is a festival of bonfires, dances and songs. It is the festival bidding adieu to the coldest days of winter and welcoming the warmer days and new harvest season. With heartwarming good wishes from Team Add247, we hope this Lohri marks the beginning of everything warm and bright in your life.

Lohri is celebrated a day before the Makar Sankranti which marks the day when the sun enters the Rashi (Zodiac) of Markar (Capricorn). It is considered a very auspicious and pious day for Sikhs and Hindus. Lohri is predominantly celebrated by the Sikhs and Hindus residing in Punjab, however, people from other religions and communities also join the celebrations. As the northern Indian experience the coldest winters in comparison to the rest of the country, Lohri brings warmth and happiness after the coldest and longest nights of the year.
With traditional songs lingering in the background amidst the festivities, people gather around bonfires and dances Bhangra and Giddha on the beats of dhol. Unlike other festivals of India where family and friends will gather at home to celebrate, Lohri is celebrated outside the house with family, friends, neighbours and all the people gathering near the bonfire. It is celebrated by eating sweets made of Gudh (jaggery) as sugarcane harvest wraps during this time.
