Even though I am a Hindu ( Ancient Indian Religion in India), Having faith on different religions and love to celebrate every festival made me visit Westminster Presbyterian Church ( Nicollet Mall, Minneapolis ) on the occasion of Christmas Eve. It is one of the oldest church in Minneapolis which was built on around 1800’s. It has magnificent architecture and beautiful inner wall designs. There was an event on the occasion of Christmas, in which there were choirs and speeches praising the lord. Choirs were accompanied by the candle lights in a dark area, which was marvelous to watch. Apart from that, there were exhibits displayed concerning the life of Jesus.

Recently, my friends and I visited New Orleans for the Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras is a carnival celebrations which is celebrated once every year in New Orleans. We traveled 4 hours to reach the place. As we reached there, it was late in the evening, we were not able to make up for the main carnival so we visited some of the nearby places. We stayed
in a hotel for that night. Initially , we went to one of the French quarter’s famous Bourbon street. Huge crowd were already gathered on that street dressed in colorful costumes, wearing bead chains and ambling across the street. Besides that, there were some people who were standing in balconies of the quarters and throwing bead chains at the carnival parade. The person who impresses the most, will get the bead chains from them due to which the people walking on the streets are looking above at the balconies and are trying to impress them. I got seven bead chains. As we walked along the street, we saw so many pubs and restaurants. They all were occupied with people, who were drinking and dancing to the music. After that at 2:00 am, we went to Cafe Du Monde, one of the famous French coffee parlor. Even though it was midnight, the cafe was jam packed. We had chai (coffee) and cookies, which were so delicious. Having a very hot coffee in chilled night weather is an awesome experience. At the end, we visited the lake nearby, took couple of pictures and left to the motel at 3:00 am. As soon as we reached our room, we took a nap. On the next day, we woke up at 9:00 am and started our journey back to Beaumont, Texas. Although we were there for a shorter duration, we saw how a night life in New Orleans looks like and had an opportunity to visit couple of prominent tourist places.
