Marking the onset of spring, this festival is grandly celebrated by every household in Jammu. Right from taking a dip in the rivers to performing sacred ‘havan’ ceremony at home, people follow rituals to the core. If theer is a new-born or a newly-wed couple in a family, the celebrations turn more elaborative. In the evening, a bonfire is lit up where people offer til, corns, phulia and gur into the fire. Lohri is also popular as a unique folk dance known as ‘Chajja’ which is performed by boys along with high-voltage music and drum beats.
