Maybe the plan was to have a month full of festivities culminating with a grand celebration on December 2nd since it's their 40th anniversary? Not sure....but it seems like it.

It had been announced 40 days of celebrations (in one form or another)

The best way to celebrate would be to give everyone 40 days off work with full pay.
Maz25 if I remember rightly from the Eid al Fitr thread you work for a government organisation - so you never know, this could happen!

40 days of celebrations - does that mean that Beach Road is going to be jammed with adolescent Emiratis on quad bikes and in stickered cars the whole time??

I DID work for a government organisation but alas, I came to my senses and I'm now living in Australia, so no more perks for me. :) But, I wouldn't put it past them to give the public sector an ultra long holiday!

I'd forgotten about the stickered cars with kids hanging out the sunroof and windows - gonna miss that this year but I'm sure Gulf News will not disappoint me and will publish enough pics to keep me happy.

I do hope not! I can hear them from my house and one day is enough of their endless revving and racing. :rolleyes:

How can there be 40 days of celebration? If it were 40 days of celebration, it should have commenced on 23rd Oct, and would undoubtedly be over advertised...
