A Christmas Song

I wanted to write a jolly song for Christmas, but then I remembered it was still raining. Pouring, the outside world has turned quickly into darkness, without any sign of warmth. In my Christmas song, I wanted to write about joy, family and good times. I wanted to sing in my song, and cry — […]

Christmas in the old city of Nazareth

A combination of heritage, culture and festive spirits. In Nazareth, in the heart of its old city. There, where it’s usually packed with tourists, there are local Christmas activities, which aren’t for tourists. The magic behind Christmas in Nazareth is not the Christian origins, but the fact that Nazareth is my hometown. I grew up […]

Christmas for Atheists

Christmas is a holiday that beats all holidays around the world. And it doesn’t matter how much you can argue, Christmas remains the most magical holiday of all times.  I was brought up in a Christian house, and surely Christmas was and still is  part of our winter holiday season. Even though we live in […]

It’s Christmas Today -a poem from 2012

Dear readers, I would like to wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy and hopeful new year. I would like to take this opportunity to share a poem I wrote and share every single year on Christmas, just because it means a lot to me. I wrote it in times of agony […]

Christmas 2015

It has been years, and nothing has changed. Nothing is new to brag about it. And nothing is significant to fulfill that hole I have been carrying for years. I carry many holes, my soul is hollow and I have no plans or milestones to fill them with. I waste my time looking for materials, I’m […]

ISIS and Islam (pt.2)

I noticed I lost some followers due to my previous post about Islam ad ISIS. I don’t want to justify myself, I only realized I’ve forgotten to mention few things and I would like to add them to a new post. I want to ask few questions that sometimes I ask myself when I defend […]

ISIS doesn’t represent Islam. So they say.

Over the last few years, lots of people grew to believe that ISIS (or ISIL – the Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant) does not by any means represent the Islam. For one thing, ISIS are massacring both Christians and Muslims in the Middle East. They fight everything and everyone that’s not them. You […]

It’s Christmas today – a poem

I wrote this poem two years ago on Christmas day (on my previous blog). I was going through tough times back then and I was feeling different than today/this year. I sent this poem to some of my friends and they thought it is sad and they didn’t like it. Of course they didn’t. One […]

Christmas Eve – in Gaza (pt.2)

You are all having the time of your lives. Christmas is all around you all. In your lovely countries. You’re all having a blast. Maybe now, you’re worried about the Christmas shopping and the gifts you have bought or going to receive. Oh you Christians around the world, thinking this time is joyous and everyone […]

Christmas Eve (pt.1)

I would like to dedicate this post for wishing all my readers/subscribers/followers a very merry Christmas. There is nothing I can add except that I wish you all don’t feel as gloomy as I am. Even though I shouldn’t, I have my friends and family by my side. Sometimes I wish Christmas wasn’t such a […]

On this Christmas day

On this Christmas day…. you have them all, but they’re not yours to keep. On this windy day, you can stay in bed and only get up for taking that special tea. On this glorious and magnificent day, you can still be that person you had a sweet dream about at that particular age. On […]

A song for Christmas – Fairytale of New York

Here goes my favorite Christmas song that I have to share every Christmas. Usually my sister and I sing it every Christmas, except this year, because she’s away. Today I realized that one of the main reasons I can be a bit gloomy is not having her this Christmas.
