CHRIST­MAS COMES BUT ONCE A YEAR…

What's On (Abu Dhabi) - - EDITOR’S LETTER -

It’s prob­a­bly just as well, given the huge amount of work that goes into it. I re­mem­ber a time when all I had to worry about was writ­ing a let­ter to the big man, and act­ing like an an­gel in the lead up to prove I was wor­thy of the lat­est Turbo Quad roller skates (they were a big deal in my town in the ‘90s, OK?). But now? It’s mak­ing sure ev­ery­one has the right present to In­sta­gram, but most im­por­tantly sort­ing out where – and what – you’re go­ing to eat and do to en­ter­tain fam­ily and friends. Luck­ily, here at What’s On we laugh in the face of Christ­mas plan­ning. Yes, we have ev­ery­thing cov­ered for a happy fes­tive sea­son in the cap­i­tal (p12) from where to go, what to do and what to eat. Ding-dong mer­rily high-five!

Away from Christ­mas, and we still have a tonne of things to tell you about. We re­veal all the big win­ners in our an­nual What’s On Awards – turn to p28 to see if your favourite won – while it’s been an­other busy month for the team who’ve been once again stuff­ing their faces in the name of jour­nal­ism (p44). Plus, we’ve got the low­down on this month’s Mubadala World Ten­nis Cham­pi­onship (p22) in­clud­ing free tick­ets to give away – per­fect for that last minute Christ­mas gift.

En­joy the is­sue and, if you cel­e­brate it, Merry Christ­mas!
