Lohri 2020 | Lo aagayi Lohri ve! Lohri, a popular Punjabi folk festival, this year will be brought in on 13 January 2020. The winter festival is primarily celebrated by Sikhs and Hindus in North India and other parts of the world. Marking the end of winter in the South Asian subcontinent, Lohri commemorates the nearing end of winter solstice. Days thereafter start getting longer as the Sun is set to enter the Northern Hemisphere. Observed a night before Makar Sankranti, Lohri usually falls on the same date i.e. 13 January each year. Speaking of it, does anyone remember Abhi – Pragya and Karan – Preeta’s Lohri celebrations from Kumkum Bhagya and Kundali Bhagya respectively? Fret not, we got you covered even if you don’t!
Abhi and Pragya celebrated their first Lohri in colour-coordinated outfits. Abhi is forced to perform the Lohri pooja with Pragya. Pragya, on the other hand, decides to confess her feelings for Abhi but cannot muster the courage to talk to him. She even calls him aside to speak to him privately but Tanu whisks Abhi away. Years later, Abhi and Pragya are separated today despite being deeply in love with each other. Will this Lohri bring them closer? Only time will tell. Catch the throwback episode here:
Moving on to Karan and Preeta’s Lohri celebrations on Kundali Bhagya this year, PreeRan ended up fighting like every time. Rishabh, Mahesh Luthra and Rakhi Luthra compliment Preeta for looking beautiful. However, Karan interrupts everyone by saying it’s just makeup. Preeta gives it back to him by commenting that Karan doesn’t like girls with brains anyway. Sarla asks Preeta and Prithvi to walk in circles around the pyre which irks Rishabh and Karan both. Things are different this year, Karan and Preeta are now married while Rishabh and Sherlyn tied the knot too last year. So, does that mean Karan and Preeta will celebrate Lohri together this year? But what about Mahira? Guess we will have to wait and watch!
