December is here, Christmas and New Years Eve are right around the corner, and a sprinkle of festive cheer is helping us feel a little extra Christmasy this year! All over the city charming lights and decorations have been put up by municipalities, organizations and businesses to spread the holiday spirit with beautiful bright lights, jolly Santas, cute reindeer, giant candy canes and more holiday decor. Loads of delightful decorations grace the heart of Beirut’s downtown area and Ashrafieh, as well as Beirut’s more residential suburbs. Most shopping malls and centers are also dazzling right now, using this opportunity to give customers and families cheerful places to hang out and have fun. The popular malls in Beirut also invite Santa Clause to visit with kids and are decked out with trees and decorations that mezmorize the little shoppers as their parents snap away their Christmas pictures.
We wish you a happy and safe festive season – enjoy the glimmering beauty of Beirut!
