“Every year I attend midnight mass at Mount Merry Church in Bandra and this process in itself makes me feel positive about everything around me. Seeing the lights and listening to the choir singing Christmas carols fills me with a different energy. It is a happiness! The church is all set for the festival and it still leaves me speechless. I also light candles for good wishes and good energy, ”says Raja Ki actress Aayegi Baraat.
The actress had Catholic friends at her school and this is how she learned about the traditions. “I used to go to mass with them and later enjoy the little flea market outside the church. This is how I started celebrating Christmas as an annual ritual, ”she says.
Dimple loves the concept of Santa Claus giving gifts to people. “During my childhood, my mother was our secret Santa Claus and she kept gifts for us. Even after growing up, I continued the tradition. I exchange secret Santa gifts with my friends and we all love him. It’s fun and we also start the New Year with a happy ending, ”she says.
They also meet every year at her place. She says, “I have the chance to cook amazing delicacies for my friends. It’s a party I look forward to every year because it’s the last party of the year.
