So it’s 31 days before Christmas as I write this entry. Time really fly sooooo fast! The weather is soooo lovely now. Most companies started their outdoor picnic, year-end get-together and planning their Christmas parties. Exciting!
Have you done your Christmas shopping yet? If not, well here in the sandpit SALEssss are starting everywhere! aye! so it’s the best time to visit the malls even the online shops or app stores and start gift buying. 😉
Dubai used to not really celebrate Christmas, but because of the endless increase of expats living here, it has now become one of the most awaited holiday. Shopping Malls are beautifully decorated with Christmas decors and plenty of hotels, restaurants, park or even bars, now have Christmas Tree lighting celebrations with Santa giving away presents and choir singing Christmas Carols. Ahhh the spirit of Christmas!
This year, UAE is now offering a White Friday Sale, I think this is the same as the Black Friday Sale in the US.
Here’s a list of what I’ve heard so far and planning to visit too: 😆
- Souq (www.souq.com) app offers upto 70%+ discount that runs from today, 23 – 26 November.
- Sacoor Brothers White-Friday-Sale – 1 day only on 25 November
- Aldo White-Friday-Sale on 24 – 25 November
- UAE National Day sale across all UAE malls – 1 – 3 December
And of course the most awaited Dubai Shopping Festival that kicks off on 26 December 😉 and runs for a month. Oh before I forget, an all year round sale at Outlet Mall! 😉
I’m pretty sure malls will be packed this coming weekend! Good thing I’ve done most of my Christmas shopping during our family trip in Bangkok. This year, most of my presents to family and friends are well thought of and personalized (hint hint). 😉
So if you’re in UAE…see you at the malls! 🙂 Happy Shopping!
