Lohri (Punjabi: ਲੋਹੜੀ (Gurmukhi), لوہڑی (Shahmukhi)) is a popular Punjabi festival,[1] celebrated by people from the Punjab region of South Asia.[2] The origins of Lohri are many and link the festival to Punjab region.[3] Many people believe the festival was originally celebrated on winter solstice day, being the shortest day and the longest night of the year, and accordingly Lohri commemorates the Winter Solstice.
Origins[edit]
There are many origins of Lohri: all forming part of folklore. However, the main theme of Lohri is the belief that Lohri is the cultural celebration of the winter solstice.[6] [7] Lohri is meant to be celebrated on the shortest day of the year. A key feature of Lohri is the bonfire. Lighting of the fire has been common in winter solstice festivals throughout time and the world:[8][9] it signifies the return of longer days.[10] The bonfire is an ancient tradition,[11] forming a key part of Lohri traditions.

Going forward, instead of celebrating Lohri on the day winter solstice occurs,[17] Punjabis celebrate it on the last day of the month during which winter solstice takes place. This is due to linking Lohri to the Bikrami calendar and the twinning of the festival with Makar Sankranti which is celebrated in the Punjab region as Maghi Sangrand.[18] Therefore, Lohri commemorates the passing of the Winter Solstice.

According to folk lore, in ancient times Lohri was celebrated on winter solstice day.[20][21] It is for this reason that people believe the Lohri night is meant to be the longest night of the year and on the day after Lohri, day light is meant to increase. The day after Lohri is celebrated as Maghi Sangrand when the days are meant to start getting longer.[11][22] People believe nights gradually shorten "by the grain of one sesame seed" once the winter solstice passes.

Scientifically, the shortest day of the year is around 21–22 December after which the days begin to get longer. Accordingly, winter solstice begins on 21 December or 22 December and Lohri ought to be celebrated on the day of winter solstice followed by Maghi (Makar) Sangrand the next day.

Lohri and the new year

Punjabi farmers see the day after Lohri (Maghi) as the financial new year. It is a very important day. The farmers celebrate Lohri as such. New agricultural tenancies commence on Lohri and rents are collected on this day.

Dulla Bhatti
Over time, people have associated Lohri to the tale of Dulla Bhatti.[29] The central theme of many Lohri songs is the legend of Dulla Bhatti, who lived in Punjab during the reign of Mughal Emperor Akbar. He was regarded as a hero in Punjab. Besides robbing the rich, he rescued poor Punjabi girls, being forcibly taken to be sold in slave market of the Middle East from the Sandal Bar region. He arranged their marriages to boys and provided them with dowries. Amongst them were two girls Sundri & Mundri(married in 1614) who gradually became theme of Punjab' folklore. So some Lohri songs express gratitude to Dulla Bhatti.

LOHRI SONG _

Sunder mundriye ho!
