This iconic scene can be found in any Christmas movie: the snow is falling, the kids are chasing each other around the snowman, laughing and hurling snowballs, while bells tinkle in the background. Unfortunately, very few of us will be able to enjoy a Christmas like this – simply because it does not snow in most regions of India.
However, there is some good news! This year, you may pack your belongings and travel to a destination where it snows. What’s the best part? You don’t even need to travel outside of India to experience the magic of a snowy Christmas; there are numerous sites in India to visit.
