Glittering pine trees, Santa Claus and stockings are part of many people’s ideas of Christmas, but the holiday can look vastly different around the globe.

From Karachi to Kashmir, the Christian community celebrated Christmas by lighting up trees and holding special prayers.

The day started with special prayers in churches and homes were lit up. Here’s how the occasion was celebrated in Pakistan:

President Dr Arif Alvi, Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief of the Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa wished the community.

“Wishing all our Christian citizens a very Happy Christmas,” the premier said.

Security was deployed outside churches across Pakistan during the prayer services.

The day started with special prayers in churches and houses were light up with colorful lights. Here’s how the community marked the celebrations
