‘Tis the season again, the season of joy, the season of blessings, the season of gifts, the season of peace, the season of love and the season of merrymaking. It is Christmas, and here comes my warmest greeting for the season. Today I am in Chandannagar to share with you the story of this quaint city and its Christmas celebration.
“HO HO HO!” Santa is in town – the Christmas season, the holiday reason and the celebration is around. The annual, worldwide celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, followed by the New Year. As date varies according to the Eastern and Western Churches so do the celebration in different parts of the World. It varies depending on the region, religion, ethnicity and cultural background of the people. Here I am with the Christmas or the ‘Boro Din’ celebration from my native city of Kolkata.
