Lohri is one of the favorite festivals celebrated by people belonging to the caste of the Punjabi people. This holiday is celebrated every night on January 13th. The festival originated in the state of Punjab, India and is now celebrated throughout the country and wherever Punjabi people is located.

Tradition

During the celebration of Lohri, all members of the family light a fire and sit around it. The holiday begins when all family members form a circle around the fire and begin to rotate around it. This rotation of participants around the fire is known as “Agni Ke Phere“. As they move, they murmur a special mantra known as the ‘Gayatri Mantra’. With each round, they sacrifice a mixture of 5 edible items. With the completion of each round, they put the mixture into the fire, decisively saying “Swaha”. This sacrifice is known as ‘Aahuti’. This process is repeated 7 times.

Kids and Family Member’s Celebration

After performing this ritual, children dance around the fire, sing and play with each other. Since the weather is pretty cold this season, everyone likes it. Family members sit together by the fire and sing, talk and have fun, enjoying the taste of the mixture that is left behind after sacrificing it in the fire. This remaining stuff is known as ‘Prasad’ and refer to it as the fruit from God (Agni Deva).
