What do Indian couples do in Christmas?
CHRISTMAS EVE TRADITIONS FOR INDIAN COUPLES
Christmas Eve is extra important as its Indian Couples dating anniversary. While we do spend time with family on Christmas Eve, we try to also make time for each other.
Dr Eliza Says, “My husband and I have a few traditions that we’ve carried over from our families but it’s always fun to add even more traditions around Christmas time. We drive around with some Christmas music playing and just look at some of the light displays around town.
It’s a cheap and easy tradition but one that we both love. You can really never have too much Christmas cheer! I really enjoy hearing what other families do to celebrate the season. We’ve gathered up some of the most spectacular Christmas Traditions that you can start with your spouse and even a few to include your family and friends, starting THIS Christmas”.
