Lohri, the Punjabi harvest festival, is a celebration of the winter crop season. On Lohri festival, a bonfire is lit; popcorns, peanuts, rewari and gajak are distributed to all neighbours, friends and relatives. Lohri is also known as Lohadi or Lal Loi. A feast, song and dance programme is arranged and every one welcomes the good crop. It holds special significance for the newly-married couple or the new-born child in the family as family members and relatives gather together to celebrate their first lohri. Women perform gidda, the folk dance of Punjab and men perform bhangra dance to celebrate the Lohri festival. Bonfire and folk songs are a major part of the celebration, and prayers are offered to the holy fire followed by distribution of sweets and prasad (holy offerings).
