Today marks the kick start of the festive occasion, which comes along with the lighting up of Christmas trees brightening stands of gift shops, hotels, restaurants to the corridors and living room of every home.

Movie lovers are also not left out this festive season as their favourite stars are coming in to help flood their phone galleries for a Christmas wallpaper change.
