Midnight Mass is one of the common trends followed in Goa, even in which Basilica of Bom Jesus, the oldest church in India, is jam-packed. The sermon starts at around 10 pm, but try to reach them as early as possible to book a seat for yourself. The whole night post the mass is celebrated with sharing of festive wishes and singing of hymns and carols.
    2. Firework Show: Old Goa is the highlight of the festive season. Beaches like Anjuna Beach, where the Christmas party floats till dawn, is a visual paradise when it comes to beach decoration in amazing colors and the beautiful firework shows following the Mass.
    3. Enjoy Goan Food: Goa is pretty well-known for its chocolate cakes, and during Christmas, these homemade chocolate cakes are a level beyond the usual cakes. Along with cakes, one should also try to relish Goan dishes like Coloured Marzipan, Bebinca, Neuros, Dodol, and Bath!
