The new year is here and the festive season is still not over. The joyful and colourful festival of Lohri is coming to fill our lives with cheer. The smell of popcorn, the flavour of groundnuts, the special revadi, and the warmth of love are going to be around us again.
With decorations and festive feel, each and everyone in India celebrates the festival of Lohri. This is one of the main reasons why I love Indian culture. It teaches us to celebrate every small thing in life and that too with full enthusiasm.
Talking about enthusiasm, music plays a great role in adding up to the festivities. And keeping the importance of music in mind, here is a list of Lohri songs both Lohri songs in Punjabi and Bollywood Lohri songs to help you be prepared and steal the show.
