Nestled on the west coast of India, Mumbai is the financial city of India that attracts millions of people every day from all parts of the country and from around the world. Life here is nothing less than a hectic race to the finish and unforgiving so probably there is no space here for those who are disappointed by the stream of bad luck. The only thing that Mumbai teaches you is to get up after you are knocked down by the fist of fate. The interesting part of the city is that every single festival is celebrated here with same enthusiasm and joy and Mumbaikars take part in every festival that they get to celebrate here which acts as a momentarily pause from a stressful lifestyle. Christianity is a minority religion in Maharashtra and in Mumbai, but that does not ruin the spirit of Christmas at all as all people get together in this festival and celebrate it together. Attending midnight mass during Christmas Eve is an important part of the tradition and almost all churches in Mumbai are packed with Christ believers but there are few popular churches that witness large number of people that come here to pray and attend midnight mass that means so much to them. Here we take a quick look at the top 5 most popular churches for Christmas midnight mass in Mumbai.
The year is just about to end in next few weeks and I am really excited about Christmas that brings a special feeling to me. Even though, Diwali is considered to be the biggest festival in India Christmas is also celebrated with same enthusiasm as people clean up their homes and decorate their windows and interiors with lights and put up Christmas tree. Of course, in some parts of India like Goa the visibility of this festival is clearer than in other states, but even though people in other states do not celebrate Christmas in grand style most families look out for some places where they can spend their holidays. The word Christmas holidays itself can create so much excitement that I can’t resist getting out from my hectic schedule and wander in some of the best destinations that India has to offer.
