Signs of Christmas in a shopping mall in Iran

A store display in the Laleh Park shopping mall in Tabriz, Iran Christmas has an official recognition for religious minorities in Iran, but it is not included as a national holiday. Iranian Christians mostly celebrate Christmas on December 25 every year. The Christmas celebration in Iran is quite similar to other celebrations that take place around the world, with Santa Claus, Christmas trees, gifts and many more traditions. (Frida Zeinali/YJI)
