The new year has begun and so has the season of festivals. Well the first most awaited festival is the Lohri that is widely celebrated throughout Delhi/NCR. Lohri is a festival celebrated mostly by ‘Punjabis’. Myths and word around says that it is celebrated to mark the shortest day of the year as the winters start to recede. If you go around asking you will hear many myths including the start of the season for reaping the soils etc. The main feature of Lohri celebrations is the burning campfire that symbolizes longer days. This festival has now crossed the regional boundaries and is now celebrated with great fervor and enthusiasm by people from all backgrounds and regions.
When so is the case then how can Gurgaon lag behind in reasons to party. Apart from the various condominiums and residential societies that celebrate Lohri, Clubs and community center has also started keeping theme parties for the same.
