Some pictures from our New year and Lohri celebration (A Story!)


Me and my gorgeous wife before we left for the new year party

I sparked off the Lohri celebrations

Popcorn and Peanuts in fire
A Lohri ritual



The flames got higher, lohri had now begun

Ritual walk around the fire

The crowd got bigger as the flames got higher

My brother enjoyed the heat

My in-laws got involved as well

Dinner was served, the food was awesome!

My wife's nephew, he came, he saw

He bowed!
