We are Lebanese.
We have Lebanese traditions.
We celebrate “Berbara” not Halloween!
Yet, you see us throwing halloween parties.
Trying to copy European and American countries most specifically the United States has slimmed down our history and culture.
Today, Friday the 23rd of November 2017 we sunk a new low. For the second time, we celebrate Black Friday. Originally, this day should be the Friday that comes after thanksgiving in the USA. But you don’t see us celebrating it! Today, my orthophonist got stuck in traffic jam because people are eager to shop on shallow sales that are made by the self-proclaimed day.
Capitalism at its finest!
