Location: Kullu, Himachal Pradesh
Also Known As: Maghi
Month: Mid-January


Winter chill outdoors contrasts well with the warmth of the fireplace indoors. Festivities take a head start with Lohri celebrations when people, young and old, volunteer to sing folk songs by the side of bonfire at night. Rest of them join dance sequences to the tunes of occasional crackling sound of blazing fire.

There is greater sobriety, but no less joy, when Lohri or Maghi comes along in mid-January. This festival is traditionally celebrated on a mid-winter day and also commemorates the last sowing of the 'Rabi' crops.
