#POPxoLucky2020: 20 Christmas Brunches In India That You Don’t Want To Miss!

Christmas is next week and I’m super excited, it’s one of my favourite festivals because it brings families from all parts of the world together under one roof. Just like every other year, I look forward to this lovely time because of sweets, presents, carol singing and of course, Christmas food. Now, Christmas food varies from family to family, but one thing is common – you eat to your heart’s content!

Unfortunately, not everyone is able to spend Christmas with family and that’s okay. Some celebrate it with their friends and lovers too. In case you don’t have plans next week, I’d be more than happy to make one for you!
