DUBAI – It’s only November but Christmas is in the air in Satwa, with the first truckload of imported real Christmas trees being sold on the sidewalk for a steep price.
A salesman told Expatmedia.net on Wednesday (November 25) that the pine trees cost Dh850 each. He said cheaper trees will soon be available that will cost between Dh500 and Dh600. Watch the video
Every year, real Christmas trees are sold in Satwa, just a few blocks away from Iranian hospital. Prices are negotiable so it is worth haggling for the best price.
Some people prefer to decorate using real Christmas trees because of the nice scent they exuberate. The smell of fresh pine needles and the natural woody must of a real tree might be the most magical, too.
And for many people who celebrate Christmas, a real Christmas tree is a festive symbol of family, tradition, and nostalgia, and is a seasonal staple.
When it comes to the festive season, Ace Hardware is always well-stocked with real Christmas trees and all the trimmings. Check out their Festival City and Sheikh Zayed Road branches.
Dubai Garden Centre also stocks on real fir trees to help you decorate your home for the Christmas season. They have branches on Sheikh Zayed Road and Jumeirah.
Spinneys supermarkets in the UAE also stock up on fir trees that you can use to deck up your halls this Christmas. ICA/Expat Media
