I enjoyed reading your article. I got a lot of information about the festival of Lohri. Lohri is essentially an agricultural festival. It’s a time of get together and enjoyment. Nowadays, with changing times, we get Lohri SMS, Lohri recipes, and even Lohri wallpapers. Lohri is an important festival of Punjabis and brings people together.

Lohri has been shown in many movies also. In the movie Veer Zaara, there is even a song on Lohri. Lohri is also shown in many TV serials. Sometimes, singers also hold Lohri functions and programmes in cities. Nowadays, you can also send Lohri greeting cards through the internet.

Lohri festival is an interesting time. All festivals are an interesting time. It is nice that there are so many types of festivals celebrated in India. I would like to see Lohri festival being celebrated. It sounds like a lot of fun. I would also like to see the people doing Bhangra or Gidda.
