Holiday of Holidays in Haifa

Once again as December comes around, Haifa celebrates the month of “Holiday of Holidays”, the Muslim “Id Eladha”, the Jewish “Chanukah” and the Christian “Christmas”

As Wafa Zoui-Fahoum, the Chairperson of the multicultural Bet Hagefen center writes “we shall celebrate all the festivals in one great, big festive holiday throughout the month”

The theme, this year is “Dream, Window” a sign which inspires many, as Haifa, in its own unique style, is an inspiration to many cities and towns in Israel and abroad.

Each weekend there are theatrical presentations, exhibitions of artist’s works, concerts, antique fairs and co-existence walks through the area of Wadi Nisnass , an area housing some 8000 of Haifa's Arab residents

The streets are decorated and atmosphere is quite electric. Since we don't have snow, the effect has to be created as can be seen in the photo.

Haifa is quite an underestimated city, isn't it time for you to come and visit us?
