A traditional bonfire, dhol , folklore and delicious feast marks the beginning of the Lohri celebrations with folks dancing to the beat of traditional songs while farmers welcoming a new year. Throwing Revari, popcorn, til , phuliya and sugar candies is considered sacred along with traditional dinner in the form of Makke Di Roti and Sarso Ka Saag forming an integral part of lohri celebrations rooting from the age old Punjabi customs.
