Lohri

Lohri is a well-loved winter Punjabi folk festival celebrated primarily in Northern India. The festival's significance and legends are numerous, intertwining with the culture and history of the Punjab region. Many believe that Lohri marks the transition beyond the winter solstice. This festival symbolizes the conclusion of winter and serves as a traditional embrace of longer days, welcoming the sun's journey to the Northern Hemisphere by the people in the northern region of the Indian subcontinent. Lohri is observed on the night preceding Maghi, as per the solar aspect of the lunisolar Punjabi calendar, and typically falls on January 13.
