The Christmas spirit has officially hit Beirut Souks! On Friday the downtown Beirut mall’s giant colorful Christmas tree came to life at the official Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony in the evening. The tree stands tall in the middle of Beirut Souks for all to see all through the Christmas season, especially at night when it’s lit and glorious, and embraces the joyous spirit of the season. At the same time the children’s Santa’s Magical Village was launched for all children to see the fun, colorful Christmas houses, visit Santa and his friends, and participate in some activities. The village will be open at the Beirut souks until January 6th, every day from 4-8 pm.
