Naan Believers

Ho ho ho, chi minhs! A Merry Christmas to you all, and to everyone else -- Happy Hannukah, Moharram, Kwaanza, Solistice, whatever floats your boat. Personally I prefer to have my boat rocked -- kind of like half-Persian guitarist Amir Derakh, whose Twitpic is seen at your left.

Did you guys put up a Christmas tree, or lights outside your house?  When I moved into my very first apartment a few years ago I put up some lights on my window just to see what it feels like. Growing up our house was the only on on our block to not do so, which just screamed "foreigners!"

So if you're from a non-Judeo-Christian family, this can be an awkward time. But in our increasingly agnostic society, where we're down with everything, its becoming the norm to see young Persian couples go with the flow.

I guess you can never have enough gift-giving moments to spend with family and friends to pretend to enjoy being around.
