It is Christmas time and the city of Mumbai is lit up with lights and decorated with beautiful Christmas decorations. Christmas Eve was a joyful evening with people coming out in throngs to celebrate the festive cheer. Be it at the churches where people gathered for midnight mass or people out on the streets just spreading the Christmas cheer by sharing with others.

Christmas is all about sharing. A young man took to the streets to distribute chocolates to these little street children to spread the Christmas joy and bring smile on their faces.
