Christmas holidays are here. It is time for vacations & celebrations.
For instance, it is that time of the year when we eagerly anticipate going on holidays with friends & family. In other words, flying half way across the globe was an exciting ritual. Unfortunately, the Covid 19 pandemic has made sure that not many people are keen to go on vacations. For example, even pre booked vacations have been cancelled due to the increasing number of Covid cases. Above all, the annual vacation time has been written off in many household. Firstly, children are disappointed. And so are adults. Similarly, while several people are still interested in staycations, it is not the same as a carefree vacation. Staycation, for the uninitiated, is going to nearby hotels and resorts and staying indoors. However, with the increasing number of Covid cases, the popularity of staycations is also declining.
CHRISTMAS IS ALMOST HERE
Hence, why not celebrate Christmas with the festive cheer & joy in another way? Let us gather together as a family & celebrate Christmas. While 2020 has largely gone by, we have mixed feelings of sadness and uncertainty due to the pandemic. However, let us look forward to the future with hope.
While Indians celebrate Diwali and Holi in a big way, Christmas is not a big celebration in many Indian homes. That is understandable as India has a majority Hindu population. Christmas is largely celebrated by Christians and Christian run institutions like schools & colleges.
Here we tell you why it is a good idea to celebrate Christmas 2020 in your home.
