India is a land of tradition and diverse culture. Many people in India are followers of Hinduism. Despite this, every festival here is celebrated with hustle and bustle. Christmas is one of them. Here in this blog, I will tell you some best places where you can celebrate Christmas in India.
In Delhi, one can meet people who belong to various religions and communities. If you want to witness religious activities and midnight masses, you can have a visit to Sacred Heart Cathedral, located in Connaught Place. If you want to enjoy this festival in a traditional style, then have a visit to the Capital City Minstrel Choir concert.

Well, personally Goa is my favourite place to celebrate Christmas. You can celebrate this festival here by meeting different people who celebrate this festival in their style. Carols, Spree, exhibitions and other celebrations can be seen very easily here. I would recommend you to ride through the streets of Goa during Christmas Eve.
