Christian denominations in Syria celebrate Christmas
Christian denominations in Syria celebrate Christmas
Christian denominations in Syria celebrated Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ, the messenger of love and peace, on Monday by holding masses and prayers in churches.

A mass was held at St. George Syrian Orthodox Church in Damascus, headed by the Supreme Head of the Universal Syriac Orthodox Church, Mar Ignatius Aphrem II in which he talked about the sublime meanings of the Christmas.

Prayers and masses were also held in a number of provinces, including Lattakia, Sweida and Hasaka, highlighting the values of love, tolerance and peace that Jesus Christ brought to humanity and praying for God for security and stability to prevail over all Syrian territory.

The celebrations also included lighting the Christmas trees and decorating balconies and facades of homes in a message on the continuation of life.

Touring in the main squares of Damascus city gives you festive feelings where Christmas decorations are more visible this year as a result of the country’s recovery from terrorism.

Father Sami Hosni of the Church of Our Lady of Damascus said that a number of expatriates have returned to their homeland to celebrate Christmas with their families.

Entertainment activities for children focused on singing and dancing performances and distributing gifts were also a part of the city’s celebrations.
