December 25th which is Christmas Day will now be recognised as a national holiday in Iraq to celebrate “the occasion of the birth of Jesus Christ”.

Taking to Twitter to make the announcement, the government of the middle eastern nation wrote,

“The @IraqiGovt announces Christmas Day to be an official holiday across Iraq. Happy Christmas to our Christian citizens, all Iraqis and to all who are celebrating around the world.”

According to CNN, Iraq had about 1.4million Christians but the number has reduced to roughly 300,000 after hundreds of thousands fled the country following violence and attacks by various armed groups over the years.
