It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas...

....well, Christmas in the Gulf at least!

I've only ever spent the holiday season in the UAE. I've never had a white Christmas. The idea of going to the beach on Christmas day is definitely not a foreign one to me.

I love it when the weather starts cooling down, and there's a nice, almost chilly breeze in the evenings, almost requiring a little jacket or a pashmina...

I love it when you wake up in the morning, and it's a beautifully sunny day, and it's the absolutely perfect temperature for spending the day at the beach.

I love it when you can walk outside without breaking into a sweat (or without you hair frizzing up at the sight of humidity...)

The change of weather also usually means a more relaxed time for me. I tend to take a few days off in December to spend them with some family members that visit from overseas... And it's usually a less hectic time at the office anyway, so I don't mind going into work if I have to.

I love "winter" in the UAE :)

Yeah, for us, it was the best time of the year. Don't know if they still do it, but we were lucky enough to be there (Abu Dhabi) when Christmas coincided with Ramadan, and then Eid. Totally magical with all the buildings dressed in swaths of lights.

I agree with you. Winter in the UAE is awesome. Too bad that it's too short.
