The Africa Diaries: Sidi Santa 4 January 2007

Posted by VARANGALI in Culture, Humor, VARANGALI.

Window shopping for electronics in Fes (you’d be surprised how expensive irons can be in Morocco), I came across this gem: the Muslim Santa Claus.

I want to be horrified, I really do. But I can’t, it’s just too ridiculous. The Santa is decked in Moroccan attire, driven by rams instead of reindeer (will they survive the festival?), and brings to all of the children of the world – on Eid al-Adha – LG refrigerators at a discount. All that’s missing is Rasheed the Red-Nosed Ram. Sweet.
