My favourite holiday is without doubt the UAE National Day…
there is something about it, you can’t miss it, you feel it, it’s in the air everywhere.
It falls on the 2nd of December, but as early as November, we start to see flags everywhere,
on almost every single government building, hotel,or house
as both UAE nationals and expatriates celebrate it with the same excitement.
It’s really heartwarming to see all these people that have converged from more than 200 countries united in happiness and pride!
And it’s definitely not a case of “happiness is contagious”: the UAE represents for all the expats a home away from home, the land of opportunities where everyone can find his own bliss: political stability, amenities, facilities, wealth, sunshine ( forget the scorching summers), luxurious, affordable or just a comfortable lifestyle.
I feel fortunate to be among those handful 10 million – out of almost 7 billion – living in the right place at the right time …in the Eldorado of the modern times as I like to call it☺️
Yes, I love the spirit, and look forward to it every year 🇦🇪🇦🇪🇦🇪
