Lohri SMS & Lohri SMS Greetings 2012

Lohri, an important Indian festival is celebrated on 13th January every year. The festival is celebrated to worship fire and is enjoyed with much pomp and joy in the northern part of India. It is believed that at the time of Lohri, the Earth begins to move towards sun thereby making a great time of Uttarayan.

Dances and songs serve to be the most interesting and enjoyable part of Lohri celebrations. As pUnjab is the land of amazing culture, a number of images of emerald green fields and warm people with great dances reflect the bonhomie and unique camaraderie of the place. Lohri dance forms are indeed an important part of Punjab’s heritage. There are dance forms for men as well as women including Bhangra, giddha, jhoomer, dankara, julli, luddi and kikli.

In evening, huge bonfires lit up everywhere in harvested fields as well as in yards and the people gather around the flames, move in circles around the bonfire, sing the festival songs and offer puffed rice and popcorn into the fire. This is the part of rituals and prayer offered to Agni, the God of Fire and to pray to the God to bless people and their land with prosperity and abundance. After parikrama, people then meet their relatives and friends, exchange Lohi greetings and distribute the Prasad.

The Lohri Prasad includes 5 main items including til, jiggery, popcorn, peanuts and gajjak. People even send popular Lohri SMS & greetings to their dear ones to wish them prosperity and luck on the festival. A large number of Lohri SMS and Lohri greetings are available on the web.

 Lohri SMS

Popcorn ki khushbu, Mungfali ki bahar,
lohari ka teohar aane ko Tayar..
Thodi si masti, Thodasa pyar,
ek din pehle o mere yaar,
mubarak ho aapko lohri ka teohar

 

 

Sunder mundarie hoy,
tera kaun vichara hoy,
dula bhati vala hoy,
duli di dhi viyai hoy
Bus bus aa le 1 rupea baki lodi te ayi Happy Lohri ,

 

Mungfali di khushboo te Gurh di Mithaas,
Makki di Roti te Sarso da Saag,
Dil di khushi te aapneya da Pyar,
Mubarak Hove Tuhanu LOHRI Da Tyohaar
