Lohri

Ambience

Lohri is a festival of the northern states espeacially Punjabis

This festival is traditionally associated with the harvest of the rabi crops

As anyone who has ever celebrated the festival in full fervour around the bonfire
would would tell you–gur rewri, peanuts and popcorns are the three edibles associated
with this festival
A bonfire is lit in the evening, known as Lohri. People perform folk dances like
bhangra and gidda on the beats of dhol (folk drum), along which they sing
traditional Lohri songs. The entire scene creates a perfect ambience for Lohri
celebrations. The songs are sometimes rhymed nonsensically and can be funny also
