In Hindi, "Christmas" is called...
क्रिसमस
[slowly] क्रिसमस
Christmas is a surprisingly big holiday in India.
You can see poinsettia trees decorated around the holiday season, and families sing carols together. You can find the statues of baby Jesus and the Virgin Mary dressed in Indian-style garments too.
On क्रिसमस or "Christmas Day," people in India greet each other by saying मेरी क्रिसमस!
(slow) मेरी क्रिसमस!
It means "Merry Christmas!
When you meet someone on Christmas day, be sure to greet them with this phrase.
Indian people also celebrate the holiday with special events and customs. The most popular food to eat during Christmas is...
कुस्वार
(slow) कुस्वार
It refers to "a set of Christmas goodies.
The selection ranges from delicious fruit cake to rose cakes and deep-fried doughs. Christmas cooking starts early and the family members make the sweets together.
