Bawadi Mall (part 2)


Here is the continuation of my post about the Bawadi Mall. For today, I would like to share the Christmas decorations of the mall considering that United Arab Emirates is a Muslim country. This is what I like living here in UAE, they are liberal with Christian holidays and celebrations compared to other Muslim countries and we are allowed to practice our religion.

Word of the day:  *taweel is the arabic term for tall. Salaam to all!

  2. Those are really big decorations!! So pretty, too. The mall looks like my kind of place, lots of clean, wide open spaces to shop, shop, shop. Or in my case lately, window shop!!
    Have a wonderful holiday. Stop by sometime!

  14. I love the tree, the decorations are beautiful. I guess I too am surprised that UAE is so liberal regarding a Christian holiday. I learn so much here in the blogging universe.
