How we celebrate Christmas in Lebanon
The most important activity during the Christmas time is the spiritual preparation. From the begining of the Advent, every sunday is sacred.
The last 9 days before Christmas day, we have special prayers every evening in all Lebanon’s churches.
In my hometown, everybody helps in preparing the “creche” in the church, practicing in the choir for Christmas Mass, organising Santa Clause’s visit to town and getting the gifts for the town’s young people.
There is warmth, there’s love and there’s closeness.
Cooking is a major part of the holidays too of course, and everything is yummy!
