Lohri marks the culmination of winter, and is celebrated a day before Makar Sankranti every year. Friends and relatives get together on the day of Lohri and enjoy some special cuisine. On the day of Lohri, sweets are distributed among friends, neighbours and families.
A bonfire is lit in the village main square at sunset. The villagers gather around the bonfire and make offerings such as till (sesame seeds), peanuts, jaggery, sugar cane to the fire. The ritual is performed for thanking the Sun God and seeking his continued protection.
The festivities of Lohri are highlighted by various singing and dancing performances.
