Saudi Christmas

The Religious Policeman:

Everywhere else in the world, you expect a visit from Santa on December 25th. In Saudi Arabia, it's a visit from the Muttawa. We sure know how to party.

In over 10 years in Saudi Arabia, not once did I see any celebratory atmosphere around December 25. It was just another day where people went to work. It was only after I came to the West that I understood the whole concept, and saw candy canes for the first time. Mmm, candy canes.
