Like all other places where Christmas celebrations begin by 24th of December every year, Goa too celebrates it with much gusto and enthusiasm. It was the day when Lord Jesus blessed the earth, a day that abounds in blessings, gifts, merrymaking and celebration and what better place to celebrate in other than the ‘place of all parties,’ that is Goa.
Since it is a state that respects people from all communities, tourists accumulate there for the festive feel and the church celebrations accompanied by caroling that lacks in most other places in India. It is a place where both modern and old traditions are celebrated; it is the only place where everyone, irrespective of their community, comes together as one to celebrate the birth of a God.
Christian around the world have been celebrating 25th December as the birthday of Jesus Christ, who is revered by Christian as the Son of God, divinely conceived by the Virgin Mary.
