Lohri Party Venues in Delhi
One of the most wonderful characteristics of our country is the fact that throughout the year, we have an occasion to celebrate.
It can be something as personal as someone’s birthday or a national festival like Eid, Diwali, or Christmas.
There is always enough reason to forget about your routine and your work stress and simply spend an amazing time with friends, family, and everyone celebrating.
There is no cap on who can celebrate or when as long as you are respectful to the cultural traditions if it is a religious occasion.
As far as birthdays and all kinds of private parties go, you have all the liberty to plan it just how you like it without anyone’s intervention.
However, there are certain celebrations which are part cultural and part personal, meant to be celebrated in your own way while obeying the traditional rules of it and one of them is Lohri.
Lohri is a festival that essentially originated in Punjab and is celebrated every year during the month of January. This year, it is scheduled to be held on 13th January.
But, what is Lohri, why is it celebrated, and by whom? It is a folk festival celebrated in Punjab by both Sikhs and Hindus from the region.
The celebration is essentially that of the winter solstice and is celebrated with a lot of jazz. This is to say that Lohri marks the end of winter and draws to an end longer days and short nights.
It is celebrated just the night before Makar Sankranti, also known as Maghi.
How is it celebrated?
Lohri is traditionally celebrated by lighting a big bonfire. The January sugarcane harvest is celebrated during the Lohri festival. Nuts harvested in January are as important to the celebration as is jaggery (guurh) and gachak.
It is traditional to eat Sarson da saag, Gajak, Makki di roti, groundnuts, and jiggery during Lohri as it includes the crops and nuts that are harvested from the month of October to January.
What makes Lohri even more of a community celebration is the practice of young, teenage boys going around the village to collect the logs for the Lohri bonfire.
The entire village comes together on the day for Lohri and celebrates with music, bhangra, and gidda with the whole community.
A lot like Halloween trick and treating, children go around from door-to-door on the day of Lohri, singing folk songs and collecting sweets, savories, and sometimes even money.
And it gets even more fun for them since turning the children empty-handed on the day of Lohri is considered inauspicious, especially in houses with newly-weds or newborns.
It is these collections gathered by the children that are called Lohri which is then distributed amongst the people itself. It consists of til, gajak, sugar (jiggery), mungphali or groundnuts, and phuliya or popcorn.
In some parts of Punjab, the Lohri is celebrating by worshipping an idol of the Lohri goddess (made of cattle dung) while in some parts the Lohri fire consists only of cow dung and wood.
The celebration starts from sunset which is when the bonfire is lit at the main village square. The villagers sit and dance around it till the fire lasts.
Some say a prayer in reverence to the element of fire and throw til (sesame seeds) or sugar (jaggery) in the fire. People also offer milk and water around the fire to thank the sun god.
Lohri is celebrated as Lal Loi in the Sindhi community and besides Punjab, is also observed in Delhi, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, and Kashmir.
