From December to April, this is surely an interesting occasion as tourists can celebrate Christmas and New Year with local people here. From Christmas until New Year, streets and houses in city center are decorated by colorful decorations, people hanging out and grand sales happening at all kinds of stores (containing those in upper ranges).
