A festival essentially dedicated to the fire and the sun God, Lohri is associated with the concept of life and health in the Hindu religion.
On the one hand, it represents the sun with the rays and on the other gold. During this time the sun transits from the zodiac sign Capricorn and moves north.
This new configuration lessens the impact of winter, replenishing its warmth. The bonfire is also lit to ward off the cold winds and welcome the spring warmth.
This is the reason why the bonfire is worshipped and venerated as a deity. People propitiate the fire by offering peanuts, popcorn, and sweets.
