Christmas in Pictures
When you can’t travel for real, travel vicariously on the internet. This was a real trip last year, now it’s a virtual one. One benefit of traveling near Christmas is seeing all the decorations – sometimes in unexpected places.

Dubai may be in an Islamic country, but they’re not shy about putting up Christmas decorations. They aren’t offended by them either. There were at least as many locals as tourists in many of the decorated places, sometimes way more. Women in their hijabs and abayas walked under hanging Christmas wreaths and other decorations or past Christmas trees and displays without a care.

Thanks. The world definitely needs a better year.
They are fun to look at.
Fingers crossed we can go this year somewhere around Xmas. I really missed my Christmas markets this year.
