Muslim-owned restaurant to give out free meals on Christmas

The Christmas spirit can move anyone to perform kind acts, even if they do not celebrate themselves. One restaurant owner in London is definitely getting into the holiday -- and helping out others in the process.

Muslim-owned eatery Shish Restaurant announced that they will give out free meals to the homeless on Christmas. They posted leaflets on the windows:

"No one eats alone on Christmas Day," the poster said. "We are here to sit with you." A three course meal for the homeless or elderly is free from noon to 6:00pm.

The restaurant's Twitter shared the news as well:

Hasan Masud, employee at Shish, spoke to Buzzfeed News about the Turkish restaurant's Christmas special. "We're just helping people," he said. He insists that no one needs to be alone on Christmas.

The reaction on social media has been overwhelmingly positive according to Masud. He said "there's been a lot of love" the restaurant's way. The tweet with the signs has received thousands of likes and retweets.
