After a lighting ceremony, a giant Christmas tree featuring asymmetrical stars lights up downtown Beirut on Thursday night near the Al-Amin Mosque. (NOW Lebanon)

Heres yoru village lol
Santa's Village - here in Beirut

Daily Star staff
Saturday, December 13, 2008

Listen to the Article - Powered by



BEIRUT: Children who want to let Santa Claus know what they want for Christmas this year can tell him in person by visiting him at his own village in Beirut. To celebrate the holidays, Solidere, in cooperation with BankMED, took the initiative to launch various activities in Downtown Beirut in the area between Martyrs Square and the Saifi district.

Santa's Village is one of the various Christmas activities in the area that can make a family's Christmas celebration both unique and memorable.

For the coming weeks, the village will play host to a wide range of activities, including live performances.

In an effort to spread holiday cheer, "Mini Studio" will be performing four daily shows for children where they can sing and dance. A village market also opens its doors, allowing children and their parents to do some shopping.


Meanwhile, Santa's assistants will be busy making toys in their workshop. Children can enjoy watching them while listening to Christmas songs.

Santa's Village is designed to feel like a magical world where reindeer speak and snowmen smile. Children can sit on Santa's lap, tell him what they want for Christmas, and get their picture taken. When night falls, the village is illuminated with bright Christmas lights.

Santa Claus is scheduled to remain in the village until December 30, between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m. - The Daily Star

Yes, Hamra is decorated, but I couldn't find photos of it. And you know, Place de l'étoile isn't ALL the centre-Ville. There's also the Saifi area, Martyrs' squre, Park Avenue, and other areas that are all decorated.
