Christmas Day

In Baghdad on Christmas Day, worshipers came to the Church of  the Virgin Mary.  

Many people had not attended Christmas Eve Mass because they were afraid of attacks, but more people turned out on Christmas Day. 

Below are Christmas Day photos from the church by Times photographer Saad Khalaf.
