Harvest festivals🌾 and happy holidays🪁

January has a whole bunch of festival days. Living in Bangalore gives a glimpse into these festivals spread across the different states. Not to forget the long weekend ahead !!

13 Jan is Lohri, a harvest festival traditionally celebrated in the state of Punjab. We didn’t have Lohri celebrations this year. But last year we had a bonfire in the apartment to mark Lohri. Getting together around a bonfire on a winter evening is nice !!

14 Jan is a multi festival day – Makara Sankranti a Hindu festival, Pongal celebrated in Tamil Nadu and Magh Bihu traditional to Assam, all welcoming summer⛅️ and harvest🌾🌾.

Our apartment had this elaborate and beautiful kolam to mark the auspicious day !!
