Merry Christmas عيد ميلاد مجيد

Mosaic of the holy family. The Hanging Church (El Muallaqa)
Tonight we celebrate Christmas here in Egypt. Coptic Christmas. For the first time, I have volunteered to cook some of the dishes that will be served at dinner tonight. I'm making a breaded stuffing, cranberry sauce, and scalloped potatoes. Recipes forthcoming this week.

Here is a interesting article that I found today:
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood attends Coptic Christmas celebrations for the first time

Egypt’s Muslims Brotherhood attended for the first time a Coptic Christmas celebration in a Cairo church as millions marked the religious event on Friday.

The celebrations of Orthodox Christmas, which Egyptian Coptic Christians mark on Saturday, saw the attendance of high ranking Brotherhood officials and figures in al-Markasiya cathedral in al-Abasiya in Cairo.
