Considering Lebanon doesn’t take part in the world cup, it’s quite a surprise that Lebanese treat it as a holiday and experience such intense emotion, excitement, and attachment to the teams and the players. We’ve compiled a list of things Lebanese experience during the world cup, and this isn’t even the half of it.
1. Overcrowded cafés and pubs. Grabbing a quick drink with your friends is no longer a possibility.



2. Flags on every street corner, or house, or car, or store front!



3. People always ask you “enta ma3 min bl mondial?”

4. Excessive fireworks. As if they weren’t enough already

5. All political and financial issues are no longer as important

6. The city never sleeps

7. It’s the talk of the town

8. There’s always someone who has absolutely no idea what’s going on

9. Food and beverage brands are supportive. (manakish, beer, cake)



10. Even your natoor’s kids wear jerseys of the team they’re supporting



11. If you listen close enough, you can hear the commentators from your neighbor’s TV because you were too cheap to pay for it.

12. It’s all over social media. Even if you don’t watch the game, you have a play-by-play of the entire match.

13. Fights are constantly initiated between fans of opposing teams

14. People cancel reservations at clubs that they made a month in advance because their team is playing that same evening

15. Even grandmothers watch the matches, turn up the volume and yell at the screen

Lebanon, meet World Cup fever!
