There have been widespread protests across the world in condemnation of Trump's decision with only Israel and the United States supporting his plan. It's one of the Holy Land's most important sites for Christmas festivities, each year, drawing tens of thousands of visitors.
Nazareth's Muslim Mayor Ali Salam told Reuters on Saturday that Christmas celebrations will continue as planned, though three singers who were supposed to perform will not appear.
Mayor Ali Salam pointed to Trump's December 6 decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital - which sparked violent protests and a call from Hamas for an uprising against Israel - as the reason for canceling all holiday plans.
"We have chose to cancel the traditional Christmas singing and dancing because we are in a time of dispute, because of what Trump has said about Jerusalem", city spokesman Salem Sharara said, Reuters reported.
