For all those of you who are celebrating New Year, I pray we all have a blessed, peaceful and creative New Year.
I am a Muslim and we follow the Lunar calendar hence our New Year is 1st of Hijri. However, for our day to day practical purposes we refer to the Gregorian calendar.
An occasion or holiday that gives us a chance to be together is cherished.
So, How did you welcome the New Year ?
We are blessed to live in the City that houses the worlds tallest tower, so where best to be at, but The Burj Khalifa !!
The fireworks were phenomenal, infact, Burj Khalifa also set the record for the longest LED light display on New Years eve. Ho boy !! It was brilliant.
Ofcourse, entry on Sheikh Zayed road and Financial center road, closed from 10:30 pm.
Cars were double parked on Al Khail road. But around 11:00 pm we realized, the authorities were moving people out from parking on the side-path of highway so we drove towards a construction site on the opposite side and had a fabulous view from there.
Needless to say we were not the only smart ones there !!
People had come prepared with flood lights, carpets, tents etc.
We had carried our tables, chairs, blankets and pizzas.
What absolute bliss.
Any occasion is an opportunity to share some special moments with the people who matter the most to you, tolerate you the most and appreciate you the most.
Good health, sound mind and the bliss of a happy family – How can anything be more precious ?
Different people celebrate in different ways. How did you welcome the New Year ?
