HOLIDAYS AND TRADITIONS

Christmas in Algeria

"Santa Claus" came down to the streets of Tizi Ouzo, without asking permission, and here he is ... making the rounds gleefully in his carriage full of bells, attracting people who are weak in their faith and distributing "presents" to them.... All this happens without anyone saying anything or raising any objection, from the Ministry of Religious Affairs to the last of those authorities who are zealous for Islam.
