Mieh w Mieh - Christmas

Every year, at Christmas and New Year time, Mieh w Mieh habitants wait for those occasions eagerly, for several reasons. The first and most important is the family reunion, where all relatives gather with each others to celebrate the occasions. Most importantly, children are expecting the presents, and the "boustrayni". Since the morning on New Year day, children visit their relatives, grandparents, and collect the boustrayni, being an amount of money.

Similar to previous years, for the Christmas occasion, two services were held in Mieh w Mieh church to celebrate Jesus birth. The first service was held on the eve of Christmas at 6:00 p.m., and the second on Christmas day, at 10:00 a.m.

In his speech this year, priest Sassine has raised the problems Lebanon is facing at this critical period, in the light of the overall black clouds in the region, and the fact the Christianity is being shrinking, from Iraq, to Palestine, to Lebanon, asking God to give the Lebanese, and especially Christians, the strength to continue living in this area of the world, with their Muslims brothers.
