UAE will be celebrating it's 40th National Day on December 2 and 3, 2011. Here in Al Ain, weeks before the said dates; the roundabouts, selected date palms and trees (which divide the roads according to the direction of travel) are decorated with colorful lights in pan arab theme and it will be taken off a week or 2 after the celebration.
Photos shown above were taken yesterday at Sheikh Zayed Roundabout and Deer Roundabout in Al Mutaredh District. I will be posting more photos of UAE National Day decorations tomorrow or a day after tomorrow.

(Apologies for the quality of the photos, guess I was not in the mood to click after a tiring day. I wish I could snap better tomorrow night.)
