Can anyone tell me if Indians celebrate Yule separately? I know that many of these traditions are followed during Christmas but I wanted to know if this festival is also celebrated separately. If so, how have Indian people managed to make the festival suit their lifestyle.

The mixing of the two festivals together has resulted in one big festival. I too did not know that they were two separate occurrences. However, given how history has progressed, I am not all that surprised. In all times, conquerors have tried to stamp their own beliefs on their subjects.

I did not know that Yule and Christmas were two different festivals. I always thought that they were just different names. Although the festival traditions have spread to all the parts of the world, their traditions and significance are still well known only in the Scandinavian regions.
