Tourists and locals are rushing to stores to get hold of the best Christmas trees and decorations.
"I personally came to this store to purchase a Christmas tree. I decorate my Christmas tree with all the decoration pieces at my house. This is Christmas mood, and each and every one should celebrate it. This is a peace-loving festival and I would like to wish everybody a happy Christmas," said Jose Philip d'Souza, Revenue Minister of Goa. (ANI)
