A Syrian man decorates the Saint Mary Church of the Holy Belt (Umm Al-Zennar Church) with a Christmas Nativity scene in the Christian-majority neighborhood of Hamidiyeh in the old city of Homs on December 17, 2017. A metallic green Christmas tree towers over the bombed-out heart of Syria’s third city Homs, where residents are relishing a holiday cheer they haven’t felt in years.
