Legend associated with Til and rori
Consuming til or sesame seeds and rori or jiggery is considered ritualistic on the Lohri day. Some believe that the words til and rori were combined to form the word tilorhi and thereafter from this word evolved the shortened version of the word Lohri.
Legend of Dullah Bhatti
Dulla Bhatti is a symbolic hero of men who protect the honor of their sisters and daughters and also inflict punishment to those who try to harm or dishonor them. Lohri songs sing the glory of the heroism and valor of Dulla Bhatti. He is a legendary figure belonging to the Rajput clan who was forcibly converted to Islam and was a highway robber.
