“O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings…”* Christmas trees in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, December 2010.

In case you’re curious, I also took a few vertical panoramic photos (the Dubai tree in particular is extremely tall!).  Here’s a separate gallery showing those taller photos:


* The title of these photos comes from the story of Jesus’s birth as recorded in the Holy Qur’an:  “[And mention] when the angels said, “O Mary, indeed Allah gives you good tidings of a word from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary — distinguished in this world and the Hereafter and among those brought near [to Allah ].”  3:45
