This is Christmas in Lebanon this Year

It isn’t a normal Christmas this year in Lebanon; wounded and fighting through one of its harshest phases in history. And yet, there is something about Christmas that resembles the inner strength of evolved individuals; both sweet and strong, gentle and engulfing, inspiring and comforting, illuminating and happily serene.

 

Lebanon might be suffering but Christmas is here, and its Spirit is stronger than ever in the hearts of the Lebanese people who won’t miss celebrating this once a year awesome event. Once again, Lebanon defies the odds and that’s thanks to its people. Unlike most countries, Christmas has a unique touch in Lebanon. Its Spirit lives in the heart of the nation and in everything we do and share.
