Last year, I had a horrible Christmas. The kids and I arrived in the UAE in October, so the pain of leaving home was still kind of fresh, then we stayed in Al Ain for the holidays. I cried most of the time from right before Thanksgiving until New Years day. We didn’t even get to see the ball dropping in New York – a family tradition.
This year, I want it to be different. Last year didn’t feel like Christmas. I don’t know if it was the fact that it was hot, or that there seemed to be little public display of Christmas spirit.
Where can I find a large selection of Christmas themed decorations that are not going to break the bank? Last year, we went to Dubai and looked at the Mall of the Emirates and I thought I would have a heart attack at the prices. That is insane! Is there a better place to go???
Also, I would like to start making my own wreaths and topiaries (since I can’t find any decent ones here), any ideas on where to get supplies for that???
OOOOO!!!! Have you guys seen the new book store??? It is on the street that the petroleum building is on, almost across from the small Choitrams! I am SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
OK, would really appreciate your help guys!
