Christmas Celebrations in Qatar :

While Christmas is not traditionally celebrated in Qatar, every year expatriates get together to celebrate Christmas in their own way, as Qatar now allows Christmas to be celebrated quietly and suprisingly, Santa Claus also manages to make it to the desert. A bonfire, and some spirited carol singing, complete the festivities.
