Nazareth, with its rich history and architecture, is a fascinating city to explore at any time of year, but at Christmas it comes alive like no other city in Israel.

The 2,000-year-old city in the Galilee, which many consider the childhood home of Jesus, has the largest Christian Arab community in Israel.

Every year, Nazareth holds a Christmas market, and there is a street festival and a parade, which this year will take place on December 24th at Mary’s Well Square.
