Origami Lanterns

And it the Christmas month already!

I really dig this festival; it brings back loads of fond memories of Christmas celebrations at school and of yummy cake. We were trained to sing carols, decorate the classrooms and chapel and there was so much of joy all around, not to mention the Christmas holidays after the mid-term exams.

One of the most celebrated festivals all over the world Christmas happens to be of absolute significance for the kids and the elders alike. Regardless of which God one prays to, most of the kids wait for the Santa to deliver the goods.

With the countdown to Christmas underway, we decided to get a wee bit crafty to decorate the space around us and make it look pretty. We wouldn’t have a white Christmas in Mumbai ever but that doesn’t dims our spirit.
