    I started Brothers Karamazov and then got distracted by the expanse series. I finished three of those books. I’m planning to read a couple of more of those next year.
    Do keep us posted on what you are reading. Your reading list is what I picked my big read books from last year and I’m glad I did.

    Only ships I'm fan-girling are of the space kind! Serenity:hearteyes: Rocinante:hearteyes: Now that's a pair I could ship. :lol:

    Speaking of Christmas-sy drinks, gimme a Mudslide by the fire — Kahlua, Baileys and Vodka! :innocent: What are Dubai Christmases like? Considering the number of Westerners out there do you see any public decorations/celebrations? You and DH have any end of year traditions?

    Hm, "cosmopolitan" and given we are also a spenders' paradise, yep, there are decorations, celebrations, and deals to attract sales obviously. Dubai tries! :wink:

    Most family resident foreigners usually go on long leave this time of the year until New Year week and enjoy holidays at home I suppose. This year neither Xmas or NY is coming around the weekends so just one day off for both. Boringgg! :sleeping:
    I hang stars and serial bulb lights in the balcony, count as traditions? :sweatsmile: We spend with family. Eat, Shop, Tour, Movies, Fireworks... Funnn! Either they visit or we go to their place. They have moved to a different country now and I'm having visa issues at both ends. Fingers crossed. :relieved:

    Btw, is your tree ready? Does it breathe fire?
