HO!HO!HO! Have you been good all year? Because it’s that time of the year when Santa Claus comes to the town!! Yes, we realize that Raipur does not celebrate Christmas like the Wild West does, however, we do have our own style of celebrating and we truly love it as we celebrate the spirit of Christmas that proffers forgiveness, love, grace and most importantly the act of sharing.
True that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ a bit differently from the western variations, but that doesn’t mean we don’t do it well. Christmas is the season of lights and colours, of giving and receiving of cakes and carols and angels and Santa – and we in Raipur do it all – with a desi twist!
The Christmas trees being decked up in malls, the enormous discounts on merchandise in stores, the sound of tinkling bobbles all around, and the sweet smell of plum cakes and candy wafting out of bakeries are tempting us all to turn this festive season into an even merrier affair.
If you want to see what’s happening in Raipur during X-mas here are a few places where you can go and enjoy.
