An excerpt about Lohri from Raj, our morning Radio South Asia Host:

        Here is some information about Lohri:

People of India celebrate Lohri with lots of happiness and joy like many other festivals. It is one of those festivals which gives an opportunity for families and friends to gather and spend some quality time together. On Lohri people visit their friends and family and distribute sweets. This festival is particularly significant for farmers as it is considered to be a harvest season. People celebrate the festival by making a bonfire and dancing and singing around it. While singing and dancing around the fire, people throw popcorns gur, rewaries, sugar-candies and sesame seeds. 

 

Happy Lohri from World FM!
