Happy Lohri!!

Hiii guyz....
Lohri is celebrated on 13th of January every year. It is a holy festival and is celebrated with great joy and happiness in North India. At this time the earth starts moving towards the direction of the sun and people started getting relief from the extreme cold.First lohri is very special for the newly wed couples and the newly born babies. At nigh people usually gather around the bonfire and often sing songs and throw popcorns, til, and puffed rice into the bonfire. People also dance side by side the bonfire and sing their songs for fun.

Lohri generally means for calling the families together and enjoy with each other but the history of lohri is little bit different. The history of Lohri is as old as the Indus valley civilisation.  Dulla Bhatti, like Robin Hood, robbed the rich and gave to the poor. The people of the area loved and respected him. He once rescued a girl from kidnappers and adopted her as his daughter. His people would remember their hero every year on Lohri. Groups of children moved from door to door, singing the Dulla Bhatti folk-song: "Dulla Bhatti ho! Dulle ne dhi viyahi ho! Ser shakar pai ho!" (Dulla gave his daughter a kilo of sugar as a marriage gift).

So i Hope you all must enjoy this great lohri!
