Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor got married in the year 2022. And soon after a few months, they announced the 'good news'. It was on November 6, 2022, when Ranbir and Alia welcomed their baby girl, Raha, into their lives. Ever since, Ranbir and Alia became parents, they left no stone unturned in sharing tidbits about their journey. Not only Raha's mom and dad but also her grandparents never miss a chance to talk about the little munchkin and share snippets of the same. And as Christmas is already knocking at the door, Raha's nani and dadi, Neetu Kapoor and Soni Razdan, provided us with glimpses of the decorations, and oh boy, it's all things hearts.
Taking to her IG handle, Alia Bhatt's mom, Soni Razdan dropped a video that featured the decoration of a Christmas tree in their home. Decorated with several ornaments, the Christmas tree looked like just the perfect epitome of the beginning of the festive season. The tree was decorated with fairy lights, garlands, baubles, tinsel, huge stars, among other things.
However, what caught our attention were the red Christmas balls on the tree, which were customised with the names of each member of the Bhatt and Kapoor families. From the names Alia, Raha, and Ranbir to Neetu, Soni, and Mahesh, everyone's name was inscribed on each of the balls. Sharing this video, Soni wrote, 'Christmas is coming'. However, Alia Bhatt's saasu maa, Neetu Kapoor also reshared the video on her IG handle.

For those who don't know, each of the ornaments with which the Christmas trees are decorated has a lot of significance. The red balls are said to symbolise the 'Red Apples' from the 'Garden Of Eden', which is considered as the fruit of knowledge. However, later, these apples developed into balls and began to be used as an ornament for Christmas tree decoration, which is done as a part of the tradition. Some people believe these red balls symbolise love and generosity.
Earlier, in a media interaction at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit, Alia Bhatt shared that Raha's grandparents always offer to help her with the little munchkin of their family. The diva also added that Raha's grandparents eagrely wait for a chance to meet the little one and often suggest Alia and Ranbir go on holiday so that they have enough time with Raha.
In the same conversation, Alia Bhatt opened up about the adorable bond that she and Ranbir's family share. The diva stated that soon after Raha was born, both of their families got along. She later added that the bond and love bloomed not only because she and Ranbir were married, or Raha came into their lives but also because it had always been there, which had just evolved. Although there have been some rumours about everything not being well between Alia and her sasural, later such speculations got dismissed as Alia and her family members often get spotted together, be it on Raha's birthday, Ranbir's screening for Animal, and more.
We are in awe of the customised Christmas ornaments of the Bhatt and Kapoor clans. What about you? Let us know!
