Traditional games like Ludo, Carrom, but also silent charades or handing over parcels are a great way to spend a nice festive evening at home.
The Lohri Festival, one of the most popular festivals in the Punjab region, marks the end of the winter season and the harvest of the Rabi plants. In contrast to most festivals, Lohri takes place on the same day every year – January 13th according to the Gregorian calendar. Families celebrate Lohri by lighting a bonfire and singing Punjabi folk songs.
However, this year the festival will be muted again due to the ongoing third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic in India. However, the celebrations can still continue inside the homes if the appropriate Covid-19 protocol is followed.
Here are some tips for safely celebrating Lohri with loved ones.
Any Lohri celebration will be incomplete without the traditional delicacies that come with it. The festival begins with the campfire, but also includes the preparation of celebratory meals made from sesame, jagger and peanuts. The traditional delicacies can be supplemented with home-made dishes instead of in restaurants.
The festival was celebrated with great zeal before the outbreak of Covid-19. However, several state governments have now imposed assembly bans. The best way to get around the ban is to have an intimate gathering with a limited number of people in order to adhere to physical distancing protocols.
HOME EVENT LOCATION
Since celebrating the occasion publicly is unsafe, inviting close friends and relatives to a private meeting at home is a good option. Having a small party at home also helps keep costs down.
Traditional games like Ludo, Carrom and even Stupid Charade or Parcel Handover are a great way to spend a nice festive evening at home with friends and family.
Lohri is incomplete without decorations. However, it is best to be careful when buying decorative items in the market. Items must be thoroughly disinfected and washed before use. Alternatively, saris and dupattas can also be used to add liveliness to the decoration.
