Although a Mus­lim emi­rate, this cos­mopoli­tan city cel­e­brates fes­ti­vals of all faiths. “Dubai goes to town on the Christ­mas dec­o­rat­ing front,” says Ge­or­gia. “It’s so beau­ti­ful. Carollers wan­der the streets at night. We usu­ally buy a real fir tree im­ported from Canada – it costs a small for­tune but the scent is heav­enly.” A high­light of the sea­son is the an­nual Car­ols in the Desert sin­ga­long, a big draw­card for ex­pat fam­i­lies.
