With people across the country celebrating India’s first festival of the year, you’d find the bonny blue skies dotted with kites. Not the avian kind but the man-made ones. Marking an end to the chilly winters (though the temperatures are still low), Makar Sankranti and Uttarayan are celebrated by many with a lot of fanfare and kite flying. Between January 13 and 14, several harvest festivals of Lohri, Makar Sankranti, Uttarayan, Pongal and Magh Bihu are celebrated across the length and breadth of India.

And as on January 14, people come to celebrate Uttarayan or Makar Sankranti, wishes and greeting have flooded the social media platforms. And as it is known, no Sankrant festivity is complete without some desserts made of jaggery and flying kites! So, as people share Bollywood songs and photos to express their love for the sports, some are also celebrating the festival with kite jokes! Yes, from punny jokes about the birds to ensure no animal is hurt from the string to starting a business venture of renting out the terrace — these relatable tweets will leave you in splits.

While some try to capture the essence of talking to their crush on the terrace just like Shah Rukh Khan in Raees, others can’t stop reminiscing good old days about flying kites. Sample these.
