the picture reminds me of the Chi Chi Chia pets. One person photoshopped it so that Al Sadr's entire head was a chi chia farm green. So funny.

Hello Abed Hamdan,

The most holy holiday for Christians is Easter because it is the time we believe that Jesus rose from the dead and thus proved his divinity. So for that reason we proclaim "Christ is Risen" "Al Maseeh Kam" every Easter ...sort of like "hey look... I told you so"...sort of a thing! :0)

Christmas is only the second holiest holiday, though you couldn't tell it here in the West... The birth of Christ is one thing but without his resurrection there would be no Christianity.

The proper response, Christian-to-Christian, is "Truly He is Risen"

And the response in Arabic is Hakkan Kam.

Here's a good link for "Christ is Risen," and "Truly He is Risen," in many languages:
