Lohri (India)

In the Punjabi culture of Northern India, Lohri is a winter folk festival. While there are many legends that surround this festival, it is thought that Lohri commemorates the passing of the winter solstice – and celebrates the coming of warmer days and shorter nights. Customs involve bonfires and eating festive foods. While this festival has significant meaning to farmers, it is also celebrated in urban communities as an opportunity to enjoy the company of friends and family.
