JUST IN: Iraq Declares Christmas Day A National Public Holiday To Mark The Birth Of Christ

The Iraqi Government has made Christmas Day a national holiday in their country.

The major announcement was made today after the Iraqi Cabinet approved an amendment to its national holiday's law which creates a new official one 'on the occasion of the birth of Jesus Christ'.

In Iraq, where 95 percent are Muslim with around 300,000 Christians, Christmas Day had been designated as a religious break only for the Iraqi Christian community, but with the new amendment, the holiday now extends to everyone.
'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,' the Iraqi government wrote on Twitter.

'We extend our warmest wishes to Christians in Iraq and around the world for a very happy and peaceful Christmas,' it added.
