December in Haifa

 Haifa is 25 km from home and used to be home for me for many years.Its a happily mixed city:
Christians, Muslims and Jews- about 270,000 at the moment.
Every December the holidays of thethe three religions  are celebrated: Christmas, Hanuka and if there is an Id ( this year there is nothing on) .
Every weekend downtown Haifa is packed with visitors looking for the Holiday spirit. It an occasion of mixing Culture , art, religion and of course food.
you won't find Leebkuchen or straw  and wood decoration , but Falafel,Schwarma, red, green, gold, silver and a lot of snowflakes and glitter!
It was a fine dry cold and sunny day today .
