As December begins everyone gears up for fun. This month is the time for parties, marriages, holidays, festivals and also for non-resident Gujaratis to visit Ahmedabad so families are getting together, friends are meeting each other, people in love are getting married, students have holidaying, at least in the latter part of December and there is a general air of festivity in this month.
Restaurants are ready for the rush of parties and crowds so they bring out the fineries, get their food, restaurant and staff in order and even come up with special festival menus and winter menus. New restaurants find this the best time to open up to cash in on the general festivity and the party mood.
