Lohri
Lohri is the festival celebrated by the Punjabi people in India on January 13. The Punjabi people celebrate Lohri by setting a camp fire and revolve around the fire while saying Gayatri Mantra. After that, kids are allowed to play around the fire while sing and dance. The cold weather of the season are warmed up by the bonfire so that the family can freely chat each other and eat traditional Indian food which are made specially for the event.
