Counted among the world’s best destinations to enjoy Christmas carnival, Goa is well-known for its churches, beaches and festive bonanza. The smallest state of India showcases decorated streets, glittering Christmas trees and fun and gaiety all over. Christmas week is the most suitable time to enjoy the cheerful and fascinating atmosphere of Goa bars, pubs, nightclubs and discos. Apart from partying, shopping is another popular activity. The hosts of accommodations like home stays and guest houses in Goa offer the best deals to the guests during the week.
Shimla is among the most visited hill-stations in India across the year. However, there is no count of the number of tourists that hit the city for Christmas-New Year week. This is the time when the hill station receives snowfall, which adds to the fervor and enthusiasm of the visitors. While there are many hotels in the city, but it is a different kind of experience to stay at a Shimla homestay or cottage option. Visit the popular churches during the day and enjoy a wonderful party at one of the many venues at night.
With its scenic backwaters and peaceful beaches, Kerala has the apt settings for any type of festival holiday celebrations.

Just like Shimla homestay options, similar accommodations can also be found all over the state.
Pondicherry is very cosmopolitan in nature and hosts Christmas and New Year celebrations for all religions.
