23 Things You Find In Every Lebanese House

How many of these typical items do you have at your house?

1. A huge plastic bag filled with 100 smaller plastic bags.

2. A dozen knives that don’t work at all.

3. …And one knife that actually does.

4. A biscuit tin that is, of course, filled with a sewing kit.

5. A dodgy and mysterious Samsonite filled with important documents that you’re never allowed near.

6. The classic kitchen tablecloth with a bunch of fruit printed on it.

7. And fridge magnets shaped like fruits.

8. A half-cut lemon that sits in the fridge for like a week or two. #AllLemonsMatter.

9. An old T-Shirt that was turned into a cleaning rag.

10. The infamous box of used batteries, buttons, superglue, and empty lighters.

11. A handful of CDs that are scratched and damaged but no one ever throws away.

12. A phonebook with old numbers from the 90s.

13. Hideous souvenirs in the living room and salon from weddings and births of random people.

14. An extensive collection of remotes that no one knows the function of but are an integral part of the household.

15. And the functional remote control that is scotch-taped together.

16. Ripped notebooks filled with cake recipes that never get made.

17. The VAPE machine.
