Christmas is only days away, and Christians in Iran are getting into the spirit.  

There are about 150,000 Christians living in Iran, most of them Armenians. They mark the holiday at home and in churches across the country. In fact, many Muslim families have adopted some Christmas customs, buying gifts for children and decorating their homes with Christmas trees.
