l oagayi l o h r i

*sigh* I remember those crispy days in Punjab with the winter crops yet now I'm stuck in this cold angrez desh with no wheat no warm bonfire no nothing. I bet a lot of you feel like that too? Aunty-ji? mami-ji? do I see nods?

but but but

this year the CC's have decided to kick it up a notch, add something spicy, make everything explode.


Just kidding. Nothing will explode...yet LOL

Us CC's want to bring back Lohri and warm the cushions you're sitting on. We want you to taste the laughter, experience the joy as if you were sitting near the fire throwing wheat and popcorn.

So here goes

WAIT does everyone know the meaning and significance of Lohri?

NOO? Shocked

Jot: Aashifa pipe down and tell them for crying out loud
Me: But jot? lohri?
Radha: get on with it Aashifa
Me: But Radha? I-
Stuti: UFF why are you so darn slow? People don't know so you tell them
Me: Okay guise. I'll tell them Ouch

Lohri welcomes the new year, it opens its hands and hearts giving it a big fat hug. Its a day of festivity, where people from the village gather around a wood fire in excitement, not minding the cold breeze but rather caring about the family feeling one feels when surrounded by people off Punjab.

It is usually celebrated on the 13th of January, for the people that believe its not just a festivity its a way of life. Lohri for them brings a warmth and spark, it brings fertility to the grounds and light to their lives. It marks the rising of the sun from the north

Hence they gather around bonfires and throw various crops into it, happily singing and dancing, as it marks a holy beginning.

So now the CC's ask you when was your first lohri?

how has lohri changed your life?
do you look forward to lohri?
what colors do you wear?
your favorite song?

Radha: Aashifa stop asking them questions now, its enough.
Jot: At least let them answer them
Me: Embarrassed

go for it guys. Reminisce the memories, sigh to your computer screen, giggle from the fun, sing your favorite song. Go crazy like we have.
