If you happen to be in Goa around Christmas Eve, there are many ways you can make your Christmas special. Having a fairly large Christian population, Christmas in Goa is a sight to behold.
You can participate in the revelries by:
- Heading to one of the North Goa beaches and watch the wonderful display of fireworks or join any party, or better still, start your own party! Be sure to carry blankets and warm clothes so that you can relax on the beach and let your hair down. Some beaches in South Goa, like Colva and Bogmalo also have their own version of Christmas fun!
- For the devout and spiritual ones, attending the midnight mass at one of the majestic, old Portuguese churches can be an uplifting and unforgettable experience. In fact, even if you are not spiritually inclined, this could be a unique experience for you!
- If you’re the clubbing types, then many venues in Goa boast of amazing parties, replete with fun, food and drinks that last through the night.
- Many high-end restaurants offer the traditional Christmas meal on Christmas Day; and your taste buds will be immensely grateful to you if you indulge them with this culinary experience!
