  • Iraq Govt Declares December 25th National Holiday to Celebrate Birth of Jesus

    The Iraqi government has official announced that henceforth, December 25th, Christmas Day, will be a national holiday to celebrate “the occasion of the birth of Jesus Christ”.


    The government of the middle eastern nation made this known via Twitter:
    "The @IraqiGovt announces Christmas Day to be an official holiday across Iraq. Happy Christmas to our Christian citizens, all Iraqis and to all who are celebrating around the world."

    According to a report from CNN, Iraq had about 1.4m Christians but the number reduced roughly to 300,000 after hundreds of thousands fled the country following violence and attacks by various armed groups over the years.
