Lohri 2020 is just around the corner and people all over the country celebrate it with great pomp and fervor. Like every year, this year also the harvest festival will fall on January 13, 2020. The festival is celebrated in many parts of India including Haryana, Punjab, Delhi and Himachal Pradesh. It not only marks the start of the new farming season but also marks the end of winters. It falls a day before another famous festival Makar Sankranti.
The festival falls in the month of Pausha as per the Hindu calendar and January 13 according to the Hindu calendar. An important part of the festival is a holy bonfire which also signifies passing of the winter solstice. Lohri marks the end of a long night of winter and beginning of longer days of summer as the Sun begins its journey to the Northern Hemisphere. Food, music, dance along with friends and family is an integral part of Lohri. On this day, women go around a fire singing the folklore “Sunder mundriye ho!” which is a traditional practice on this day.
Here we bring you best messages and greetings that you can send your loved ones:
May the bonfire give you warmth and joys of life,
rewari and gachak bring sweetens to your relationships,
moongphalli and til add crispness in your life and
the kite of your success soar high into the sky!

Sweetens your life like Reori;
