The Quint Wishes You a Trippy Lohri
The Quint is getting into the Lohri Spirit and here is a video to prove just that.
Lohri is here. This festival officially marks the harvest season in Punjab. Traditionally in the morning on Lohri day, children go from door to door singing and demanding the Lohri ‘loot’ in the form of money and eatables like til (sesame) seeds, peanuts, jaggery, or sweets like gajak, rewri, etc.
In the evening, with the setting of the sun, huge bonfires are lit in the harvested fields and in the front yards of houses. People gather around the rising flames, circle (parikrama) the bonfire and throw puffed rice, popcorn and other munchies into the fire, all the while singing popular folk songs.
