Merry Christmas!

AAN Team < 1 min

Here at AAN, we’d like to wish all our readers a Merry Christmas! May your holidays, in Afghanistan as well as abroad, be peaceful. And for those who remain in Kabul and wish to celebrate in style: as every year, fancy trees  are back again and sold, including decoration, on Flower Street in Shar-e Naw. Many of them are made of plastic – but if you want the real thing, flower shop owners are happy to organize a spruce in a pot for you. Enjoy!
