DCF Snow FightDUBAI CHRISTMAS FEST PROMISES SANTA, SNOW AND SUNSHINE

Host of activities for children including writing and posting Letters to Santa

The end of the year is traditionally a time for family and friends to come together, and at Dubai Christmas Fest, this year everyone is invited to enjoy a snow-filled, frosty festive long weekend in the sunshine.

Returning for its third year as the UAE’s number one festive celebration, bigger and better than ever before, the Dubai Christmas Fest runs from 11-13 December at Dubai Media City Amphitheatre, offering a wonderful day out and magical experience for all ages.

Living far away from family can be especially difficult for expatriates in the UAE at this time of year, but the mission at Dubai Christmas Fest is to make families feel as close to home as possible. Everyone will have the opportunity to enjoy a white winter wonderland at the event – from the ice rink and snow fight zone to enjoying snowfall on the hour every hour, there is no reason not to enter into the Christmas spirit.

I broke my own rules last year and found myself wrapping stocking presents after I’d vowed to never be in that position again. Get organised and you can trip off to all the parties in December without a care in the world. Plus you’ll feel assured that friends and family near and far have all felt just a little bit special.

1. Christmas cards

I love receiving post from friends and family abroad. The best way to receive is to give and my Christmas card list has a core of friends I’d like to keep in touch with. The round Robin letter is abhorred by some but I rather like reading them – unless of the ‘thinly veiled boast ‘our children are so high achieving’ type. There are online options if you want to save a few trees. Get round the expensive postage by picking up a large amount of stamp books next time you are home. The ones in the UK say ‘1st class’ or ‘2nd class’ so leftovers will last indefinitely. Get your cards written early (I’m doing mine this weekend) and have them ready addressed and stamped then look out for friends traveling home. A quick call out on Facebook works wonders. If they have a stamp on them most people don’t mind shoving them in a letterbox at the airport. Read more
