The unveiling of the Christmas Carousel
The unveiling of the carnival-themed Christmas carousel took place recently at The Oberoi.
This unique twist to the otherwise traditional celebration of the hotel garnered a lot of attention from people gathered for the event.
This was followed by cocktails and canapés to keep the audience entertained.
The unveiling also saw the choir of the hotel engaging the crowd with popular carols and Christmas songs.
Nitya David, a recruiter, says, "The highlight of the evening was the beautiful carousel made of chocolates and sweets. This was a great idea. I have been all around the world but this is the first time I have seen something like this. The carols singing in the background just added to the feel of Christmas."
Many in the crowd felt that the carousel was the highlight of the event and added a good element of surprise. "I am a regular at the Christmas celebrations of The Oberoi. Last time was also spectacular but this year's celebrations took me by surprise. The mirth and cheer has given a joyful start to the celebration," says Ashish Dubey, official IPL emcee.
