During the event, they performed traditional Indian dances as well as offered an Indian take on modern carols and Christmas food, Indian style.
Christmas is a rather small festival in India, due to the number of people who are Christians (about 2.3%), compared to people who belong to other religions. Nevertheless, with the population of India at over 1 billion, there are over 25 million Christians in India!
