The festive season is upon us once again – and Dubai is embracing the season by doing what Dubai does best – turning on the festivities galore, showcasing a multicultural nation coming together to make this a season everyone hopefully will enjoy – one way or another.
Dubai’s shopping malls are filled with decorative and seasonal window displays and music systems are filling our ears with Christmas carols like “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” or “Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!” Not much chance of any white precipitation falling from the sky, but if snow is what it takes – a visit to Ski Dubai should help ease (read: freeze) you into the festive season!
Where I come from, anything but a green Christmas tree would be frowned upon by most people – and I admit being one of those people, but that was in the past. Fair enough, I’ve no desire to have a purple, blue, pink or any other coloured – except maybe green – plastic fantastic tree in my home, but in Dubai’s malls and hotels they look amazing!
It’s beginning to feel a bit like Christmas… even for someone who got upset when her mother bought a beautiful green Christmas tree that didn’t come from the woods – it was Made in China!
