The biggest Christmas tree in Damascus – Syria, standing 30 meters tall, was lit up on Saturday evening at Abbasiyyin Square, as part of a festivity organized by Action Project to celebrate Christmas and the New Year.

The festivity included a Christmas parade starting from Bab Touma Square, passing through al-Qasa’a neighborhood, and ending at Abbasiyyin Square, featuring Christmas tunes and songs by the Action Project’s scouts troupe, and handing gifts to children and passersby by volunteers dressed as Santa Claus.
