Celebrated in Punjab on 13th January, Lohri celebrates the successful harvest of the Rabi crops - an extremely important event in a predominantly agricultural community. It is a community festival, and celebrated as one. Children go from door to door to collect funds for community bonfires that are lit up in the evening. The villagers gather around the bonfires and offer sweets, puffed rice, til (sesame) and popcorn to the flames. The evening is spent singing, dancing, and exchanging greetings with family and friends.
After Lohri, the biting cold of North Indian winters begins to taper off.
