Christmas greetings from Pakistan, where Christians, Muslims, and Hindus celebrated together at the Peace Center in Lahore last year. Pakistanis face a troubled legacy of religiously-motivated violent acts, with minorities like Christians and Hindus facing special danger from extremist groups. The act of sharing holiday joy together is a brave and inspirational statement that acts as a symbol for all that peace among neighbors of different faiths is possible.
