Christmas in Qatar is hard on most people.
It definitely isn’t a traditional one. It doesn’t snow in Qatar, and during December it isn’t cold most of the days. People can actually go to the beach during the day here. Only hotels and stores have public decorations because so many locals who are Muslim, complain that decorating for Christmas publicly should be band because of so many foolish, racist reasons. I guess I got use to the religious racism here.
However, Christmas isn’t about all the beautiful Christmas tress around town, or the snow. Christmas isn’t about all the wonderful carols, and colorful decorations. Christmas is about family, and Jesus Christ. That’s why it doesn’t matter where in the world you are, and whether you have the traditional Christmas or not, what matters is you are surrounded by loved ones, and that you remember Christmas is about Jesus Christ.
