Bangalore Celebrates Christmas 2013

Bangalore: It is the time to sing carols, eat a traditional Christmas spread, drink and make merry. It is celebration time for Bangalore as the city dives into the Christmas spirit.

Houses, churches and offices are fascinatingly embellished with colorful lights to mark the festival in a grand way. Bishops and pastors led services and delivered sermons in various churches of different Christian denominations in the city.

Churches all across the city are at the embellished best and so are the houses. It is not only celebration at a personal level for Bangalore, but also celebrating it with those who cannot celebrate it or cannot afford to celebrate. " Bangalore Celebrate Christmas with those who cannot celebrate it, " says a happy Jean Magesh from CV Raman Nagar who has invited friends over on Christmas

She further informs, "For four weeks we prepare ourselves for today. We keep the baby in the manjer following all the Catholic traditions." Her kids are Hannah(8) and Jessica(4) are indeed the lucky ones as secret Santa has gifted them gold earrings and an original guitar for Christmas. It is sweets at home and traditional Christmas spread after people go for the servic

The Catholic Club at Museum road in the city saw a huge number of Christians celebrating Christmas and dancing together with family and friends. "I went to the catholic club last night and stayed there till 4 am. We had a formal party with lots of dancing," says Sujith Sebastian. His family doesn't follow the traditional western spread but have gone a whole notch up with the menu laid out at the table.

"We had a really grand lunch which had all kinds of meat; turkey, chicken , beef, sea-food. Not the typical western spread happening. And for breakfast it was mutton stew with Uppam. I think, I should be living in the gym for 3 days," says Sujith. It is gift time for a happy Raymond Roy who is celebrating his Christmas with friends over Turkey and drinks.
