The festive season is finally here and Cairo’s Christmas events are in full swing! From bazaars and holiday markets to musical performances and more, there really is no shortage of things to do in the few weeks leading up to Christmas.
While listening to Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” definitely puts us in immediate holiday-mode, there is just something so very special about watching a choir or orchestra perform your favorite Christmas tunes live!
