Christmas night at a Kerala Church
Have you ever had a stroll down the streets on a Christmas night? It would be a different nightlife experience devoid of dance, party and discotheques.
You can savour the cool night and strains of carol music that gently mingles with the breeze. It would be as invigorating as a gentle rain in a parched land.
Redeemer of mankind
In the Christmas night believers remember with deep veneration the birth of Jesus Christ, the greatest exhorter of love, peace and brotherhood. And across the world believers consider the Holy Midnight Mass as a divine occasion.
This video vignette a scene of Christmas night from the St. Joseph’s Church at Palayam in the heart of the city of Thiruvananthapuram. The church is locally known as Palayam Palli.
Thiruvananthapuram (formerly Trivandrum) is the capital district of Kerala, India. Christmas is a grand celebration in the state, where Christianity has deep roots.
