Lohri is the harvest festival 

Nowadays, in all the cities of India, no attention is paid to tasks like harvesting.

The traditional winter crop is harvested around this festival, hence this festival is also called the harvest festival.

Mythology related to Lohri

A mythological story behind celebrating Lohri is also related to Mata Sati. King Daksha, the father of Mata Sati, had performed the Mahayagya when Lord Shiva and Mata Sati were not invited. It is said that this festival is also celebrated because of the surrender of Sati, the daughter of Daksha Prajapati, in the fire.
