Kuwait orders all shops to remove Christmas decorations

The local municipality in Kuwait City has mandated the removal of all Christmas decorations from shops, causing an abrupt halt to festive preparations in the city. 

This directive, affecting areas like Boulevard, has led to disappointment among residents and confusion among shop owners who were gearing up for the holiday season. The sudden order requires businesses to dismantle their decorated displays, impacting normal operations during a crucial sales period. 

The municipality has not provided an official statement explaining the decision, leaving residents seeking clarity. Kuwait has a history of restricting the sale of Christmas decorations, citing concerns about potential conflicts with the country’s religion, customs, and traditions.
