west-bay-snowmanStanding in the lift the other day I overheard newly arrived  expats clutching mugs of hot chocolate talking about how weird it is to be in Dubai at Christmas time.  It definitely isn’t cold outside so I suppose drinking hot chocolate is what they ‘feel’ they should be doing at this time of year!

For the children Santa is obviously a big part of Christmas and for one of the best grottos get down to the Wafi Mall where you will find him in his very authentic log cabin.  The grotto is open till the 24th December from 10am to 10pm and costs DHS 60 (inclusive of a cuddly toy and a photo with 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.
