Christmas in the past
  • In the mamluk times the streets were decorated
    with lamps. Candles were everywhere! Also a
    wonderful establishment called Mena House would
    dress for Christmas. The whole floor was turned
    into a winter scene with artificial snow and
    frosted trees and plants. Also log fires would
    burn merrily in the many fireplaces.

Language
  • In Egypt they would speak Egyptian obviously.
    They would write like our pictures shown on the
