Christmas shopping in Tehran on eve of New Year

According to the religious calendar of Iranian Armenians, Jesus Christ’s birthday is celebrated on January 6. But while Christmas Day is celebrated on December 25, some shops and stores in Tehran sell pine trees and other symbols and statuettes just days before that date.

Mirzaye Shirazi Street in northern Tehran has taken on the Christmas spirit due to its closeness to Saint Sarkis Cathedral, which is one of the most famous churches in Iran.

These days, the shops of Mirzaye Shirazi, especially variety shops, are full of colorful Christmas decorations and items used to celebrate Jesus Christ’s birthday.

Meanwhile, artificial pine trees have been put for sale on the sidewalks next to each other.
