unveiled its Christmas tree on Roman Street. Just like every year, the tree never fails to amaze us with its splendor! Maghdouché, a southern region in Lebanon, introduced its Christmas decoration yesterday. The church, the tree, and the Marian shrine are beautifully decorated with fairy lights. The shrine is known as Our Lady of Mantara or Our Lady of Awaiting. In fact, it is believed that the cave below the sculpture is where the Virgin Mary was waiting for Jesus when they were in Sidon. We can’t wait to see what other regions are preparing for Christmas!
