Our digital birdie told us that this year’s December 25 brought happiness to people from both side of the globe for different reasons.

Many of the Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities jetted off to exotic places to celebrate the holiday season. Celeb tweets revolved around prayers of enlightenment and Christmas delicacies and most importantly, around how everyone is praying for the generous Santa’s visit to town.

On the other hand, Pakistan celebrates the birth of Muhammad Ali Jinnah (Quaid-e-Azam) as well as Christmas on December 25. However, this time around, Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf hosted a larger-than-life political rally at Quaid’s mausoleum. Thousands of emotionally driven Pakistanis converged at the mausoleum to support PTI’s promise of justice.

Here are the top ten tweets of this week.

Jemima Khan

Loving the #PTI #Imran Khan supporters who have changed their profile picture to ‘Yes We Khan’. Lots of support from overseas Pakistanis too

Sami Shah

It’s actually fun to see public speakers who know how to control a crowd

Bina Shah

My favourite part of Imran Khan’s speech: ‘We will not interfere in women’s clothing.’ An important reassurance for women who fear PTI will turn Taliban after coming to power


It’s Christmas, something to believe in. I believe the love that we feel for each other is His gift to us

Kim Kardashian

Santa got me an iPhone! I’m just going to keep it as my second phone because I don’t know if I’m going to like this touch screen stuff! I’m excited to try though

Oprah Winfrey

Merry Christmas to all. May the day bring you the birth of hope and peace and all that Christ represents. May His light be reborn in us all

Madhuri Dixit

Excited! Off to the Maldives for some rest and relaxation. Hope everyone is having a good holiday season

Anupam Kher

Happiness is the cheapest thing in the world when we buy it for someone else. Merry Christmas

Karan Johar

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all of you. It’s the season to forgive and forget, to skip regret to live and let live

Arjun Rampal

Merry Xmas, be free, be alive, be in love, be yourself, because everyone is beautiful. Love you all

    Imran Khan has well used all the plateforms of social media including FACEBOOK and Twitter in order to bring himself closer to youth and he actually is successful. After him many seasoned politicians are understanding the importance of technology and modern day techniques to reach out to people. Brilliant Imran Khan
