Christmas Eve in Istanbul & Holiday Greetings

It seems that the tradition among some American Jews is that they "celebrate" Christmas by eating Chinese or Indian food.
I was thinking what the Jews in Istanbul do on Christmas Eve? As they have a great cuisine compared to American "cuisine", Chinese and Indian food are not very big among Turkish Jews (at least when I was growing up). But the in thing for them is to go to St. Antoine.
I know that my niece who flew to Istanbul from New York yesterday, is in St. Antoine now with all her friends.

To all of you-whether you are celebrating Christmas, or you recently celebrated Hanukkah or Kurban or if you don't believe in anything- have a good holiday.

Life is good!
