Christmas Eve dinner in Dubai – It has been nearly 30 years that we always put up a Christmas tree in Dubai. Every year, same corner at my parent’s house, we argue over who gets to decorate it, we over spend on ornaments and we break most. We collect ornaments from across the world, one ornament every year. This has been going on for 30 wonderful years. Santa walks right through the front door now, its a familiar place. There is no place like home away from home especially on Christmas Eve.
Now that there is a 2 year old running around, Christmas has become even more special. We have changed the position of the tree, it’s in a special corner at my own house now, the ornaments we buy now are handpicked by our daughter, still though, we break some, but what has never changed is that we celebrate this beautiful occasion in Dubai with family and friends. A place where we were fortunate enough to call home. A place that allowed us to share and celebrate all holidays and special occasions.
Although we always celebrate at home, this year we decided to search for Christmas eve dinner somewhere fun, exciting and new and maybe try that for a change. Here are a few of our favorites so far on where to celebrate Christmas eve with good food. Do you have any favorites we should take a look at?
