Hindu Society celebrate Christmas in style

Pass the parcel and musical statues were amongst the games enjoyed by dozens of Hindu youngsters at an annual Christmas party yesterday.

The Hindu Society for Maidenhead organise the festive bash every year to celebrate the season and get families involved in traditional Christmas trappings like eating a big meal and singing carols.

The day started with prayers before about 40 youngsters enjoyed homemade traditional vegetarian food and party games as well as a talent show.

Speaking yesterday, trustee Surinder Arora said: "We try to get everybody involved in the Christmas celebration by throwing a party every year. I think everybody really enjoyed themselves today."

The group, which was set up seven years ago, hosts regular functions at St Piran's School.

The meetings are open to everyone.

Their next event will be held on Sunday, January 6 to welcome the New Year.

Prayers for peace will be held at the Gringer Hill school before the celebration.
