From what I've seen this year, it's pretty much the same as last year. We're off to see Santa tomorrow with Bob and his friend Jelly. I planned to go to Carols in the Desert, but I just don't have the energy, there have been a few Christmas Jumper parties, but I just didn't get the energy up to go along.
I'm not feeling christmas this year, we've booked lunch with child 4 of 5 at the Sheraton Grand and we've plans for the New Year on the beach with child 5 of 5 and our 24 year old niece who is visiting also.
Christmas chocolates have been bought and replaced several times already. Any one else do this?
I'll add more photo's to the blog as now I'm no longer working, I'll have time to visit a few more places.
The shops have been full of christmas stuff since the beginning of November.
Ace Garden Centre.
There are very few 'real' trees in Dubai, and at around £140 for an 8ft tree we certainly won't be buying one.
Our purple tree of nothingness. no theme, just a home to hang all the owl decorations that we've collected for some reason, we're not owl fans.
Our main tree, that the Pandas on the Veranda (Elf on a shelf alternative) have been messing around with.
Having lived on 3 continents, Europe, Africa and Asia over the last 6 years, we've bought lots of local trinkets which we like to hang on the tree.
Not designed as a Christmas Tree but looks good.
Display Windows in Dubai Mall
The Souk Madinat Jumeriah.
Mirdif City Centre Mall
The Walk at JBR.
Mall of the Emirates, Ski dome. We still need to explore the rest of the mall.
We're off later to Festival City and of course there is still the Dubai Mall to fully explore, but for me this is the best Christmas tree in the world.
The Burj Khalifa with it's daily LED display.
