Happy Lohri!!

Lohri is one of the most popular festivals in India and especially the North. It is marked with Bonfire in the open at night. The whole family/neighborhood get together at a single place, light up a bonfire and eat sweets (Gachak, rewari etc.) and roasted peanut. The festival is a celebration to get a good harvest of wheat as it is the winter crop in North India.

The festival is commenced by offering the sweets, peanuts and popcorn to the fire (God Agni).
