The new year brings along a lot of hope and optimism. Along with that, a lot of regional festivals. Lohri being one of those festivals which mark the new beginnings and celebration of the same. Sitting around the bonfire singing folk Punjabi songs and munching on popcorn and peanuts is something we look forward to every January. As WFH extends to this year, we bring you 10 fabulous ideas to celebrate virtual Lohri party with your team and enjoy a virtual bonfire
Sunder Mundriye Ho
While celebrating Lohri, keep in mind that traditions are an integral element to the celebration. You can have a singing competition where one group of participants sing regional folk phrases called Tappe or Boliyan and the other group gives out metaphorical treats, in the form of good wishes to their teammates.
While celebrating Lohri online, not only you get to munch on snacks but also play fun games with them. You can go desi and try Peanut bobbing which is a cousin of famous Halloween game Apple Bobbing. All you have to do is crack as many peanuts as you can in under a minute and eat them without using your hands.A fun spirited game for a spirited team of yours!
Popcorns with Chopsticks
Enjoy a fun game of finishing a bowl of Popcorns with your teammates. One who eats a whole bowl of popcorn first wins. However, it is not as simple. You have to eat the bowl using chopsticks! Test your motor skills as you crack up while playing this game.
Show Me The Money Game
The game moderator announces numbers at random and participants having cash of the same value win. For instance, the anchor says 6 and the participants carrying 1 five and a one-rupee coin win. The USP of this game lies in matching the odds and playing along the randomness.
The Bhangra Boliyan Bash
Experience the true spirit of Lohri with a Bhangra Dance Party. You may rope in a bhangra dance expert and enjoy an electric Bhangra performance and dance along with your loved ones. Bhangra not only sets the vibe for a party but also gives you a decent sneak peek into the rich cultural history of Punjab.

Festival of Fire with Fire Dance Performances
