Christmas is one of the biggest celebrations in the world. Houses glow with lights, streets look soothing green because of Christmas trees and that red Santa Claus decoration simply adds life in the celebration.

Festivity of Christmas can also be experienced in the air; it is filled with happiness, laughter and love. Giving and getting gifts is indeed the best part about this celebration. I personally love Christmas celebration as it is the best combo in the world; peak winters plus celebration. Winters give us all the space to enjoy our favorite cuisines. Winter for me means you can eat as much or whatever you want.
