  • Our Summer in Tehran

Our Summer in Tehran | Christmas Tree | PBS

Duration: 01:04
Program: Our Summer in Tehran

The word Jesus has as much to do with Christmas in Tehran as the word bagels.

In the case of Iranian kids, their delight derives from the activity of decorating the tree. The gift part of Christmas is practiced, but not excessively so.
