Christian Para (Locality) in Bondel Road is a small hamlet near southern end of Kolkata . Here a small number of Christian families live for many decades now.
Like every year, this year too the Bondel Road – ChristianPara was decorated for the festive event. There was Santa and several welcome banners.
The pictorial display on Birth of Christ was an important aspect.
Nativity display with clay images was popular especially among children.
The Church Service was a 7.30 a.m. and the small church was quite crowded.
At the end of the service there was get together sharing cake and tea. This was followed by Christmas Tree lucky dip for all.
No celebration is complete without a royal meal.
Each family was ready for their own way of celebration: It begins with collecting items for home cake making. First the resins, cherries, nuts and so on.
Then finely cutting cherries, nuts and cleaning the resins. Dry them up.
After procuring the eggs, then one fine morning taking them to the nearest Bakery. And Hurrah, Happy Days are here again.
Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happpy New Year.
