Well said by yourslef and Mr. Tristam. As an atheist American of one Jewish and one Christian parent currently residing in a predominantly Muslim country, I get all variety of "seasons greetings" none of which technically apply to me. No matter, they're all well intentioned, and warmly recieved. It's kind of funny actually, I'm not Arab, but look as if I am and and speak Arabic fairly well. People generally don't know what to make of me. I get Eid mubaraks and merry christmas's about equally. Haven't gotten a happy Hanukkah yet though.

Is "kul aam wa ente bekheer" the arab version of "happy holidays"? :)

Just stumbled on the blog a few weeks ago as it was linked on another that i read. I'm enjoying it. I wish you all the best in your recovery.
