A Virtual Christmas Vacation

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, UAE

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.
