Newly Wedded Couples and their Family Members' Celebration

In Punjabi families Lohri is an important festival and people enjoy celebrating it. In Indian culture marriage is treated as a religious act and the newly wedded wife is assumed as a blessing from God. Taking this in mind all family members who are related to newly wedded couples celebrate Lohri by throwing huge parties. Guests are invited and proper dinner is organized. After celebrating Lohri, i.e. after 'Agni Ke Phere' and 'Aahuti', all the guests give the newly wedded couples their blessings and good wishes along with the gifts they present to the couples. Kids sing and dance around the fire and everyone enjoys the evening of Lohri.

Tradition of Lohri is quite old but even today it is celebrated with the same respect and enthusiasm by all the Punjabi families around the globe. The season when this festival comes is winter and the atmosphere is chilled. So everyone likes to sit near the fire. This makes them feel comfortable and relaxed.
