It's Christmas season! The time of the year when markets are laced with shades of red, white and green, along with everything sweet. Christmas marks the birth anniversary of Jesus Christ, whose teachings form the foundation of the religion. But over the years, Christmas has become a festive season across countries and religions and people across the world participate in the festivities. People start the prep for rum cake and ring in the festivities with their near and dear ones with a lavish Christmas feast on the D-day. Be it minced pies, turkey or fruit cakes, Christmas is the time when one must binge without a thought.  While puddings, stollen breads, roast turkey, gingerbread cookies are all a part of the Christmas table, the cocktails make the festival merrier.
