20 Festive Events Happening In Lebanon On Christmas Day


Christmas is a good holiday to celebrate the long wintery days with your family, especially now since many Lebanese expats are coming home to celebrate in their home country.

Many events are taking place this season, including on December 25th.

For many in the country this year, celebrating Christmas is not about partying unmindfully but is driven by a stance of resilience, so known to the Lebanese, who are determined to defy the challenges of these hard times.

They know there will be hard times to come as the crises haven’t stopped. They want to grab that special annual day and celebrate it, whatever what, for “tomorrow the fight for survival will continue.”

And for those coming from abroad, it is good to remember Lebanon as they knew it growing up. These events can give them that with their loved ones.
