Christmas in Cairo

There's no denying the feeling of Christmas in the states with festive music in the stores and lights on peoples homes, the feeling of Christmas is something that is apparent every year in the US. Here in Cairo it's been a little different. Muslims do not celebrate Christmas, and Coptic Christians celebrate Christmas on January 7th. A couple of people had nice little Christmas parties and dinners in order to celebrate the holidays in a familiar way.

There were some places where Christmas decorations could be found, like the City Stars Mall, but overall I think I saw Christmas decorations only a handful of times.

So the Christmas season came and went in Cairo, but it never really hit me here.
