Happy Lohri 2023: Lohri is a well-known harvest festival that is celebrated with fire and zeal throughout Punjab, as well as portions of Haryana, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu, and Delhi. Lohri is regarded as the beginning of the New Year’s celebration, which happens on January 13 each year, and is celebrated mostly by Sikhs and Hindus across the country and the world. The celebration consists of lighting a bonfire, singing folk music and dancing, particularly bhangra and gidda, and savouring the traditional delicacies: Makki di roti with Sarson da saag, gajak.
Lohri, also known as Lohadi or Lal Loi, is a harvest festival celebrated in Punjab. Each year, Lohri occurs on January 13, one day before Makar Sankranti, another popular Hindu event that occurs on January 14-15. Lohri signifies the end of winter and the beginning of longer days. Lohri is observed to honour the arrival of the sun in the northern hemisphere. Nevertheless, it is typically connected with rabi harvesting.
Lohri is a celebration associated with the lighting of bonfires, the consumption of a traditional meal, and the performance of traditional songs and dances. It is observed to express gratitude to the lord sun and mother earth for a bountiful crop.
The history of the Lohri festival
There are numerous legends related with Lohri, but the narrative of Dulla Bhatti is the most well-known. Dulla Bhatti was a man who resided in Punjab during Akbar’s reign. Similar to Robin Hood, Dulla Bhatti used to rob the wealthy to support the poor and needy. He even rescued a girl from her kidnappers and raised her as his own daughter. Even in the absence of a priest, he conducted the rituals on the day of her wedding. People adored and revered him so much that they began to perform the folk song “Sundar-Mundriye” every Lohri. This is just one story, but we are confident you will find many more amazing anecdotes linked with this festival!
How we observe Lohri
Lohri is one of the most significant festivals in India, and preparations begin several days in advance. When it is the first Lohri for a new family member, though, preparations and festivities must be extravagant. Whether it’s a newlywed or a newborn, family members ensure that the first Lohri is a memorable one.
The centrepiece of this celebration is a large bonfire around which friends, family, and neighbours gather to sing, dance, and have fun while performing bhangra and gidda. Numerous customs and rituals are related with Lohri; on this day, people assemble around a bonfire and offer fire oblations to God as a manner of expressing gratitude. They offer prasad by placing sesame seeds, jaggery, rewari, popcorn, and maize seeds in the fire while walking around a bonfire. Additionally, they pray for health and prosperity.
Newlyweds’ first Lohri celebration
In the family, the first Lohri of a newlywed is a highly memorable occasion. On the occasion of Lohri, the newlywed woman dons a colourful new attire, bangles, and henna (Mehendi) on her hands. In-laws, friends, and family members also give the new bride several gifts, clothing, and jewellery. Additionally, the first Lohri of a newlywed is considered extremely lucky because it represents fertility.
A newborn infant’s first Lohri celebration
A baby provides joy, love, and warmth to a family, therefore it is only fitting that their firsts be exceptional and memorable! If this is the first Lohri for a baby in the family, the parents and other family members work to make it an unforgettable experience. The infant and his mother are dressed in their finest attire for the party, and the new mother is requested to sit with the infant in her arms. Then, friends and family donate fruit, candies, clothing, jewellery, and other items to the mother and infant.
Lohri is approaching, and no celebration would be complete without sending your loved ones the greatest Lohri greetings, messages, and presents. Sending a Happy Lohri WhatsApp status in addition to a gorgeous Lohri greeting card just adds to the fervour of the festivities.
