New Delhi: It's that time of the year when it is more than alright to load up on popcorn and peanuts. The auspicious festival of Lohri is finally upon us. Lohri is celebrated across the world but mostly by people across North India, particularly Hindus and Sikhs in Punjab, Haryana and Delhi. Traditionally, Lohri is celebrated with great pomp and show amidst family, friends and loved ones. People light up a bonfire and gather around it. They also throw in peanuts, popcorn, jaggery and other things in it while walking around it. Many families also celebrate the night by dancing to the beats of a dhol or singing folk songs together. It is a great occasion to bring all loved ones under one roof and is celebrated with great fervor. Lohri is considered as beginning of the new financial year for farmers and is also linked with the harvest of rabi crops. It is believed that Lohri marks the end of winter and the onset of spring.

Lohri ki aag mein dehan ho saare gam
Khushiyaan aayein aap ke jeevan mein hardam.
