Bhaderwah/IBNS: Lohri festival was celebrated on Thursday in Chenab Valley with grandeur despite having received heavy snowfall.

Several rituals were performed by people which included throwing walnuts, groundnuts, sesame seeds, rewaris, popcorns, and other items into the fire.

People danced around the fire celebrating the end of cold winters and welcomed the season of spring, fruitfulness, and the new year, as per the Bikrami calendar.

All markets were abuzz with shoppers on Lohri as people were being appealed all to follow Covid Appropriate Behaviour (CAB) and wear masks to contain the spread of coronavirus and its Omicron variant.

The main function was organized at Seri Bazaar, Bhaderwah where a huge bonfire was lit and despite recent snowfall people from all sections of the society came together to celebrate the Lohri festival.
