Eid Mania in Dubai

Eid in Dubai is just a little short of crazy. You're in the middle of a desert, so any outdoor activity is pretty much out of the question. What happens, then, is that everyone goes to malls and hotels. The streets are packed with cars trying to get to some air-conditioned destination, and once you get to that destination, you can hardly move because of the sheer numbers of human beings crammed into that space.

I was at Festival City today and yesterday, and I was nearly climbing over people to get to my seat in the restaurant or to move to another part of the mall. There were so many kids - screaming, laughing, crying, jumping around, showing off their new presents. Being stuck at university all the time, it's sometimes shocking to see so many people under the age of 18 at once. But despite the headaches that I got from all the noise (oh God, I sound like my grandmother), it was a nice change.

I guess that's what Eid, or any major holiday, is all about. Breaking out of our daily routine and submitting to life's blissful craziness. These are the days that stay with us when we get old and look back at our lives. So we might as well enjoy them!

Eid Mubarak!
