    A strange coincidence, we too in AP  call it as Bhogi. All children and elders wear new clothes and sit around a Bonfire

    On  13 th January , the Sun enters Makar Rashi . So  it is Makar Sankranti celebrated as  Lohri is extremely popular winter festival in India, especially North India. Lohri is usually celebrated where a bonfire in the evening of 13 January is made.

    In our place it is called Puddar celebrated on Sunday  by all agriculturist families. In my own family, the entire family gathers iny ancestral home for a vegetarian lunch using the newly cultivated and prepared rice and vegetables grown in the part of the field that is left out . Normally a portion of the field is left for growing vegetables and pulses and it remains higher than the paddy field so that it does not get water logged.


    Pay no mind to those who talk behind your back, it simply means that you are two steps ahead !!!

    According to the Hindu calendar month of Paush,  when the sun comes up to Capricorn from Sagittarius at this festival is celebrated only. Makar Sankranti day of the solstice the sun begins pace. So this festival is also called sporadic Uttarayani.

    Makar Sankranti are several mythological stories attached.

    It is said that on this day the God  Sun is meet his Son Saturn on his own home, and The Saturn is the Lord of Capricorn, so this day is known as Makar Sankranti.

    We celebrate makar sankranti in Rajesthan, Much has flown kites on this day in Rajesthan ..
