“Even though Christmas comes at a very gloomy time of the year, it’s one of my favorite days to celebrate,” says Sneha Koirala, owner of the lifestyle brand Studio Sarcastic. “I grew up in a convent school. And since childhood, I have always viewed this day as a festival. We weren’t allowed to visit homes during this time. But Christmas always arrived after our exams were over and when it was time to have fun.” She adds. “It doesn’t have the traditional or cultural aspects of other Nepali festivals; there’re no rules or rituals. But that didn’t take away from its preciousness”
