Libya blogs: The Last Week of 2006

The main themes dominating the Libyan blogs during this last week were, New Year, Christmas and Eid greetings, whith Khadijateri posting about the Eid Al Adha celebration and using photos for illustration.

Libyan bloggers were also concerned with new pets, such as AngLibyan who brought a tame budgie home.

Meanwhile , On Tripoli continued to review the interesting places for eating out in Tripoli. His recent post covers the fast food outlet “pizza pizza”.

However, like their colleages in the Arab world , Saddam Hussein's demise insinuated itself into the moslty mundane blogging topics. of the Libyans. For example, Highlander , Safia Speaks , Lebeeya says and Braveheart were all disgusted and shocked at the poor taste in picking the date of Saddam's death, and firmly believing there is some purpose and symbolising to the choice of executing Saddam in such a hurry and on one of the most special occasions in the Islamic calendar.

Happy New Year and Eid Mubarak !
