Sunday Musings #30: One About Having Plans And Schedules

Dec 23, 201832 comments

Hello people,

Christmas is one of my favorite festival, even though I don’t celebrate it. Especially since moving to Dubai I am doubly excited just looking at the huge ass displays they have at the malls and other central places. 

And we are going on a three holiday starting tomorrow (read again: we don’t celebrate Christmas) to Fujairah. There are technically very few places to visit (or that is what Google says) so we will be enjoying our stay at the resort. I will be sharing the photos in my next Sunday post.

On the other news, I am all geared up for the New year and I am well equipped with plans for the blog. Yes that is plural and you know I tend to go overboard with the scheduling bit. Of course, the real problem comes with the execution, but that is a topic for another day. So yes, I have planned it all for January and I will keep planning.

    I have a bunch of non-christian friends, who love Christmas. One puts up more decorations than I do. It’s fun to look at all the fanfare. I hope you have a wonderful and safe trip. I eager to see those pictures, because I have never been there.

    Happy holidays even if you don’t celebrate Christmas – actually I don’t celebrate the religious Christmas either, just give me all the Christmas trees and lights and the opportunity to spread the message of kindness to the world!

    And yay for being organized and ready for New Year!
