‘Tis the season!!

Deals and discounts, bunches of holly, danglers of red and green and of course, the portly, white-bearded man in red and white – all these can only mean one thing – CHRISTMAS IS HERE!!

Even though we don’t get snow in Chennai and don’t really have a “winter” season (we only have hot, hotter and hottest), we do celebrate Christmas in our own way.

Here are some sure ways that you know it is Christmas in Chennai:

 1)     Christmas specials

Your favourite restaurants and stores will have Christmas discounts and sales (don’t forget the online food delivery!).

 2)     Plum cakes

You’re suddenly receiving hundreds of plum cakes (or Christmas cake) from family and friends and don’t know what to do with them. If you don’t like them, then you’re in trouble.

 3)     Carols

Deck the halls with boughs of holly, fa la la la la la la la la You hear happy, joyful and cheery music wherever you go and can’t seem to get it out of your head (Fa la la la la la la la laaa)

 4)     Ho Ho Ho!!

Portly, joyous, white-bearded men in red and white and their “Ho Ho Ho” is a common sight. Wonder if the reindeer can be spotted too

 5)     Parties

During this holiday season, people throw numerous Christmas parties and dinners that you’re expected to wear red and green to – how many red and green outfits can a person have?!

Let us know your thoughts below in the comments section on Xmas in Chennai!! Happy Christmas folks!!
