Lohri Festival Decoration & Party Ideas (2019)


The Hindu God of fire, Lord Agni and the folklore of Dulla Bhatti is sung with much fervour, with dhol playing in the background. It is similar to the celebration of Makar Sakranti or Maghi, celebrated in other parts of the country, but since Punjabis like to do everything king size, their Lohri celebrations are full of colour, music, laughter and great food.

Many families who have a newborn in the house celebrate the first Lohri of the child and similarly the first Lohri of newlyweds is celebrated with much enthusiasm.

Til (sesame) and rorhi (jaggery) are eaten as traditional foods on this occasion, and people gather around the bonfire, sing songs and throw in foods like gajak, chikki, puffed rice, popcorn, rewri, sesame seeds, jaggery, peanuts and sugarcane to pay homage to roots.

If you are planning to throw a Lohri party, make sure you get your guest list ready and block everyone’s date well in advance. And get prepping soon, coz we’ve got you some ideas to celebrate the festival in style!

Colour, music and good food are the basic essentials of every Lohri party. But to add a bit of zing to your celebration, we’ve got you ideas you will love.
