So your family are all Christians? I DIDN’T know people in INDIA, celebrated Christmas since my year’s back Landlords (they owned the place I rented) NEVER/EVER celebrated Christmas, and they had a Doctor’s office, and they were so delighted to see their patients on December 24, and even on the 25th! So employees HAD/Were FORCED to work.
We had a lot of arguments over that because they wanted us to work on those days, too. Yes, I worked part-time for them, too. They would not speak to us for days showing their anger (if we called in sick lol), and the only day they DID close the office was NEW YEAR’s DAY, but wasn’t much since they worked on New Year’s Eve unless there was a blizzard and roads were close (which happened a few times) Thank God!
I found this so some do but is named differently
What is India’s Christmas called?

In addition, Christmas is widely celebrated by the substantial Christian population in India’s remote northeast region (head to Shillong in Meghalaya , Kohima in Nagaland, or Aizwal in Mizoram), as well as other south Indian cities such as Bangalore and Chennai.Dec 22, 2020
Is Christmas and Eid celebrated only in India?
Because many countries celebrate Eid on the same date . It is celebrated in kingdom of Saudi Arabia but Christmas is a festival of Christian world-(Europe and America) . The simple reason being there are very few Christians live in India . Only ,they celebrated the Christmas .Jan 4, 2021

[PS. I found this also where you are from MUMBAI
One of the largest Indian Christian Communities in a city is in Mumbai. A lot of the Christians in Mumbai (previously known as Bombay) are Roman Catholics]
Compared to other religious festivals, Christmas is quite a small festival in India, due to the number of people who are Christians (about 2.3%) compared to people who belong to other religions.
The population of India is over 1 Billion, so there are over 25 million Christians in India.
In India’s smallest state, Goa which is on the west of India, about 26% of people are Christians. Many of the Christians in Mumbai came from or have roots in Goa. The states of Manipur, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Mizoram (all on the very east of India) have high populations of Christians as well.
Many different languages are spoken in India.
In Hindi Happy/Merry Christmas is ‘Śubh krisamas’ (शुभ क्रिसमस).
Urdu it’s ‘krismas mubarak’ (کرسمس).
In Sanskrit it’s 'Krismasasya shubhkaamnaain In Gujarati it’s ‘Anandi Natal’ or ‘Khushi Natal’ (આનંદી નાતાલ).
In Bengali ‘shubho bôṛodin’ (শুভ বড়দিন).
In Tamil it’s 'kiṟistumas vāḻttukkaḷ.’
