In some of the churches, the services concluded with the distribution of cake and coffee.

Christmas was celebrated on Monday in Jammu and Kashmir with traditional enthusiasm and religious fervour with members of the small population of Christians in the valley thronging churches for Mass as special prayers were held for world peace. "This year also we did not make it so big, but colourful celebrations are taking place", said Father Roy at the Holy Family Catholic Church on MA Road in Srinagar.

The churches in the city were all decked up and festive mood prevailed in the houses of the Christian community.

Apart from the midnight mass, which is also known as vigil mass, Christmas Day mass was held on Monday.

"Occasions like Christmas remind us to rekindle the spirit of harmony, brotherhood & lead a virtuous life".

Everyone from the community prayed for the peace and prosperity in Kashmir with people from other religions joining them.

"I hope in the year ahead, we will be witnessing further cooperation and rapport on the path to boosting and deepening peace, security and tranquility, and further consolidation of friendships across the globe", he added. Kashmir belongs to all of us and we live happily together. "It was pleasing to see lot of non-Christians celebrating Christmas with the community".

Speaking on the occasion, Rev. Dr. K.A. William said, "The birth of Jesus is one of the important dates in human history as the eras are also termed with reference to his birth - Before Christ (BC) and AD (Anno Domini)". Unlike a year ago, the Mass was conducted inside the church. The original bell was damaged in a fire on June 7, 1967.

Chief Minister Mehbooba took to twitter and greeted people on the eve of Christmas.

"#MerryChristmas to all of you".
