Mizoram churches to celebrate Christmas, New Year in low-key manner

Wednesday, 25 Nov, 11.38 am

The Mizoram government has decided to make appeals to churches not to celebrate Christmas and New Year in a manner which could attract public gathering to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission.

State health minister, R. Lalthangliana on Tuesday held a meeting with leaders of churches and civil society organizations to discuss the issue.

All churches will be asked to avoid church service, congregational singing locally called Zaikhawm, community feast and other social gatherings that are an integral part of Christmas and New Year celebrations.
