Obsessed with the World Cup
Every 4 years, it's the same thing all over again. We, Lebanese, love enthusiasm, love supporting, love competing, love affiliating ourselves with a big football team out there. And what for? It might be a big psychological problem i.e. lack of affection, or never really having Lebanese team reach the world cup, or those might be post-war syndrome, etc... But the result? It's FUN FUN FUN.
During big games, there is no traffic. People gathered either in restaurants, coffee shops, pubs or the comfort of their own houses, over food, booz and lotsa nuts!
How do we prepare for the world cup? Take a look at the photos, and you will see there is a whole flag industry right there!
May the best team win (*coughs GERMANY coughs*)
Placing small flags on cars
Hanging Flags on the balconies
So do you do that in your country too? And who are you supporting?
