Just a few short years after ISIS swept across Iraq and committed genocide against Christians and other minority religious groups in the region, the country’s government officially declared Christmas a national holiday this year.
A declaration was made Christmas Eve to designate December 25 a national holiday for all Iraqi citizens. Previously, it was reserved for Christians only.
We extend our warmest wishes to Christians in Iraq and around the world for a very happy and peaceful Christmas.
Recently, President Trump signed a declaration holding ISIS accountable for war crimes and genocide in the region.
