Christmas Day Lunches and Dinners in Dubai
Personally, I don’t think Christmas Day is completely until you’ve stuffed yourself full of turkey, tried a few Brussel sprouts (in case this year you actually like them) and consumed enough potatoes to swear off them for another year. Luckily, Dubai offers some of the best Christmas Day Lunches and Dinners where you can do all of that and you don’t even have to worry about cleaning up afterwards.
These Christmas Day Lunches and Dinners go excellently with one of the many cheap hotels in Dubai and can really bring Christmas together.
