As in most places in the world, the celebration of Christmas in India has always been, and continues to be, a time to spend golden moments with friends and relatives. Christians are a minority here and form nearly 2.3% of the population. But the fact that there are only about 25 million Christians in India, in no way lessens the observance of the festival. The tradition of Christmas observance was introduced here with the colonization of Europeans. Today, Christmas is the biggest and most-loved festival of Indian Christians. The festival is also enthusiastically celebrated by people of other religions residing here.
The best place in India with awesome Christmas celebrations is in Goa. Goa is actually the most popular and the finest palace to celebrate Christmas.
