Maghi

 
Next day after Lohri comes Maghi. It is a popular festival of the Punjabis. On this day fairs are held at many places, people go out for a holy dip and give away a lot in charity. The special dish of the day is kheer cooked in sugarcane juice. The most colourful and hilarious of all the festivals which are celebrated in the Punjab is Holi which is celebrated on the full-moon day of Phagun. A big fair known as Hola Mahala is held at Anandpur on the next day after Holi. Villagers come from far-off places to join it. Some festivals are held in the Punjab in honour of the Sikh Gurus. These are called Gurupureabs. They are well spread over the year. There are three important Gurupurabs. On the full moon of Karthik the birth anniversary of Guru Nanak is celebrated by the devotees with great ardour. Two days earlier a non-stop reading  of the Adi Granth is started. At different places religious congregations are held and hymns from the Granth Sahib are chanted . large processions are taken out through the towns. At night buildings are illuminated. The birth anniversary of Guru Gobind Singh is also celebrated in a similar manner. The third important Gurupurab is the one associated with the martyrdom of Guru Arjun Dev.
