December 25, 2007. Here came Christmas and the much awaited Christmas celebrations at Candid kicked off in style. It was a beautiful evening and all those present (most of the Candidians were at home celebrating with their friends & families) were enjoying the ambiance and partying. Suddenly all the lights went out! Which everyone greeted with an OOO…, a rocking Christmas carol started playing from the loudspeakers. It was the Software Development Department where the lights first came on, and lo! It was Santa trotting in to the department and he had a bag full of goodies for everyone!
