On the morning of 25 December, the faithful gathered at the Holy Family Cathedral in downtown Kuwait City to celebrate the festive season of Christmas with prayers. The priest who led the mass spoke about the origins of Christmas, and the faith the Holy Family, Mary, Joseph and Jesus placed in God. He said that the congregation celebrating Christmas should consider saying yes to God so miracles could take place in their lives. And went on to emphasize the hope and joy of the season, and the close connection to the almighty that the people share. Following the end of the mass, jubilant parishioners shared Christmas wishes among family and friends, and discussed their exciting Christmas plans.
