Two years ago, I was stranded in the United Arab Emirates at Christmas because of terrible snowstorms across Ireland and England. I was delighted to find, in this very Muslim country, many Christmas decorations and carols being played. Of course, being the UAE, this Christmas tree is “over the top”….it’s decorated with $11 MILLION worth of jewelry! It was in the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi and was very well-guarded.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

I really enjoyed seeing the red, white and blue when I was homesick in Dubai. The crane may be the national bird of Dubai.
