MP Ahmed Al-Fadhl called for declaring Christmas a public holiday and for erecting a large Christmas tree on Safat Square in Kuwait City to allow Christians to mark the occasion.
LWDLIK - You are your father's son. Ahmed who's father, the legendary MP Nabeel Al-Fadhl, died a year ago tomorrow whilst in session at Parliament. The flame lives on.
After rumours earlier this week that several MPs were rallying for Christmas trees to be banned from display only an Al-Fadhl could counter with something like this. I doubt his demands will ever be met but thank you Ahmed for your support from the Christmas tree lovers in Kuwait. I say Christmas tree lovers as I see more and more Kuwaiti Muslims putting up trees, just because they're cute. I see my Muslim Kuwaiti neighbour's twinkling tree everyday from my window.
Certainly to show such support, tolerance and brotherly love for Christians, during this time, is most appreciated.
