There comes a time when the punjabies can better themselves and that’s when they start celebrating the birth of their daughters.
I am blessed and fortunate to be able to do so, so join me today as I celebrate Lori for all our daughters …
Lori is a time when we sit with our family and friends around a campfire , eat roasted nuts and food and some have a little sip – being grateful for our blessings..
When the moment is that good , then everyone has a story to tell . That is the best part of LOHRI , the listening of the stories – thank you for sharing yours .
I am seated in my warm armchair and viewing the videos of the Lori bonfire on my smart phone with my family and friends all over the world doing the same thing.
Lori is now celebrated and shared worldwide .
Don’t forget to light a fire even if it’s a little Joyt. .
