This week, Muslims commemorate the birth of Prophet Muhammad and Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus peace be upon them. Irbid’s biggest mall has a beautiful Christmas decoration.
In Jordan, Christmas is a national day. However, I felt this year Christmas decorations and Muslims greeting and wishing Christians a Merry Christmas was more than the previous years. The bad news this sense of solidarity happened only after a drastic event like the advent of Daesh. The good news Daesh reunited Muslims against them. Muslims in Jordan are telling Daesh their ideology of killing others is not welcomed here and letting Christians know they are loved.
