Lohri, the Punjabi harvest festival, is here. It will be celebrated on January 14 this year. The Lohri Sankranti moment is 2:22 am on January 15, according to drikpanchang.com. Lohri is also known as Lohadi or Lal Loi. The joyous festival that celebrates the new harvest and marks the end of the winter season, is celebrated with bonfires and dance. Usually the family of the newly-weds or the family in which a baby is born hosts the Lohri party. Lohri commemorates the passing of the winter solstice. The ancient significance of the festival is both as a winter crop season celebration and a remembrance of the Sun God. Lohri is celebrated a day before Makar Sankranti, a festival that marks the end of the month with the winter solstice and beginning of longer days. People exchange beautiful Lohri messages, greet each other, wear new dresses, and circle around the bonfire to the tunes of famous festival song, "sundar mundariye ho". They also throw popcorns, rewari and groundnuts in the fire. It is also traditional to eat "til rice" which is made by mixing jaggery, sesame seeds and rice on this day.
Here are Lohri wishes, images, wallpapers, quotes, status, SMS, messages, photos, pics, and greetings that you can share with your loved ones:
