Christmas season is here and the holiday spirit is felt around the country, mainly thanks to the countless brilliant evergreens decorating our streets, churches, restaurants and balconies.
The German Colony neighborhood in Haifa is all decorated in colorful lights and opposite to city's church towers a rather impressive Christmas tree alongside a Hanukkah menorah adorned with a Star of David and a Minaret - a kind of spire and a prominent architectural feature of a Muslim mosque.
Haifa's Wadi Nisnas has a particularly glamorous and festive look at this time of year as well thanks to its many cafes and bakeries operating in it.
The capital, Jerusalem, also sports this combination of a menorah and a yule tree. A beautiful Hanukkah menorah shines at the historical Tower of David and not far from it sprouts an ornate fir tree glaring with a variety of shades and colors.
There are also other impressive trees in Jaffa and Nazareth, home to the Middle East's biggest Christmas tree, as well as in the Arab villages in the northern region - which are decorated for the holiday with lots of shiny lights, colorful lamps, Santa dolls of various sizes and a particularly fun and joyful atmosphere.
