In India, the most noticeable aspect of Christmas Eve is the Midnight Mass, which gets the full attendance of Christians. People get the opportunity to bond with their entire family and enjoy a delicious feast of traditional delicacies, specially prepared for this occasion. Gifts are exchanged after having a good meal. The embellishments in churches are truly a visual delight, with all the floral arrangements and candles.
Today, the Indian Christians use Mango, Banana or almost any tree that they can get in the absence of the traditional Xmas tree. As a way of expressing their love and gratitude towards Jesus Christ, they hang beautiful lanterns outside their homes. This makes the entire surroundings bright and colourful. People recreate the scenes of the Nativity by placing small figures of Jesus Christ and other characters near their homes at a beautifully decorated corner.
