And so, we celebrated yet another Christmas today. This year’s Christmas, after one year, was again spent in Pune, and again celebrated with my best friend of three years, Parnal. It was a simple celebration … red and white balloons, few stockings, and a home-baked cake, followed by Christmas carols and Serendipity.
For those who would like to know why I celebrate Christmas with so much enthusiasm every year, in spite of being a Hindu (hey c’mon people that’s racist by the way), I would like to tell you all that I had the fortune of being brought up in a convent school. It brings to me that amazing nostalgic feeling of being in the school once again … performing dramas, singing carols, attending the holy mass, and other celebrations that began a week before Christmas holidays.
School was so much more fun around Christmas. And you won’t believe, the chocolates we used to get for Christmas. They were made by the nuns in our school in their convent, and did not taste one bit good. They were made entirely out of bournvita, but they were sweet, and they were chocolates, so that made us happy anyway. Good times.
So, that’s why, Christmas, for me, has been and will always be just as important as any other festival. I still remember how difficult it was to manage decoration in the small town of Pachora last year. But me and my childhood bestie had a kick-ass Christmas party anyway. I missed her a lot today. I am hoping she had an amazing Christmas too.
So, what did I get for Christmas? Well, I have everything I need for now. But hey Santa, thanx for stopping by anyway. 😛
Merry Christmas you all. 🙂
