Christmas in the Middle East

One of my dear friends here is Arab-American. Here we are at her house decorating her Christmas tree as we listen to carols. The carols are a bit different in Arabic, but I shared a few of my favorites with her last year and she brought our CD back out this year! Even though she celebrates Christmas, she had never heard 'O Holy Night' or 'Silent Night' or 'The First Noel'.

I plan to decorate another tree tonight with my co-workers!
