UAE Celebrates 38th National Day

I had so many plans for today, but ended up staying in bed with a horrible headache, the kind that makes you want to rush to the hospital to have an MRI taken and insist on intravenous analgesics narcotic for relief.  Fortunately, it subsided in the evening, alhumdulillah, and we were able to go out for a family dinner at a Persian restaurant.

However, the rest of the U.A.E. celebrated today.  There was a colorful parade at Downtown Burj Dubai.  The Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi had planned for the world’s largest fireworks, which will reach up to 2,000 metre into the air, will feature 100,000 devices to be set off from 12 barges situated offshore.

There is news about a solar-powered flag.

In Sharjah, the 2009 Etisalat–Sharjah Water Festival kicked off at Al Majaz Park and will run till December 12,  The line-up this year has a daily Sesame Street Performance, acrobatics, children’s entertainment shows at Mouj Land, carnival parades featuring clowns and stilt-walkers, circus shows and concerts.

Yet the country’s widely circulated paper decides to make a mistake today …
