The Arabic Christmas Carols To Get You in the Festive Spirit

Let it thalj, let it thalj, let it thalj

Christmas is in about 48-hours from now, bringing with it festive decorations, blinding lights, and traditional holiday tunes — including Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You for obvious reasons.

When it comes to Christmas carols, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, I Saw Three Ships (Come Sailing In), or Do You Hear What I Hear, are a couple of the certified all-time bangers of this season, but did you know that our region is also home to a slew of its own holiday songs? 

Home to millions of Christians, the Middle Eastern take on Xmas is one to safeguard and preserve as its uniqueness distinguishes it from what we are used to thinking when looking forward to the yearly holiday.

To get you in the Christmas spirit, we rounded up some Arabic Christmas carols to play on repeat this weekend.
