On Christmas Eve, midnight mass and day services are held in the Churches to send out the message and sermons of love and redemption to the devotees as people gather to pray and thank God for his blessings and commemorate the sacrifices of Christ that he made to save the mankind. Midnight mass is held, as Christ was believed to have born at midnight. People dress up in their best holiday clothes as they go to the church at midnight mass, which is usually followed by Christmas celebrations. A lot of Christmas carols and hymns, Christmas decorations, candles, scripture and Bible readings are the highlights of the Midnight mass.
