National Day Celebrations

December 2nd is National Day in the UAE.  This year is their 40th celebration and everything has been in high-swing.  The cars are super-decorated everywhere………..

Buildings are heavily decorated too……IMG_3532    


Even the skies were decorated……



One of the craziest things is the evening of National Day.  People swarm the Corniche (the main road) and it’s like a super-super-slow cruise to show off their cars and spray silly string and fake snow at everyone.  People try hard to spray it into the cars when the windows are open and people spray each other on the walkway.  I was bombarded once by a group of people and the kids were loving the whole scene.  Surprisingly – it was a blast!!
