Ahmedabad: To commemorate the Christmas festival, churches, shopping centres, and other structures were decorated with colourful lights. Members of the Christian community gave prayers and attended midnight masses around Gujarat.

The celebrations, which started late on Saturday night and went into Sunday, saw a great number of people come out to greet one another, visit the homes of their relatives and friends, and exchange gifts.

Due to a drop in temperature in some areas of the state, people gathered in churches for the midnight masses while donning new clothes, some even dressed up in winter costume.

In Ahmedabad and other cities, churches, malls, other structures, and homes were decked out for the holidays with lights, festoons, and trees.

Apart from Christians, members of other communities joined in the celebrations in Ahmedabad, Vadodara, and other cities’ public spaces.

In some locations, Santa Claus impersonators may be seen welcoming guests at malls, gardens, and churches.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and the fear of a viral infection last year, the festival was held in a modest way.

This time, folks didn’t pass up the opportunity for a lavish celebration.

In several nations, the number of COVID-19 cases has increased.

Mansukh Mandaviya, the Union Minister of Health, announced on Saturday that travellers from China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, and Thailand would be required to undergo an RT-PCR test for the identification of COVID-19.
