UAE is gearing up to celebrate its 46th National Day or Yawm Al Watani on December 2, 2017. As the seven Emirates prepare for the celebrations, excitement can be visibly sensed in every part of the country! The officials have announced that the private sector will enjoy a three-day break starting from November 30th to December 2nd in connection with Yawm Al Watani.
At the helm of the celebration is Dubai, the largest city of UAE and one of the most highly visited tourist places across the world. From offices to residential apartments, preparations for the big day can be seen everywhere!
For those you are unaware of this holiday and it’s significance, here’s a tiny background story.
The Significance of Yawm Al Watani
The National Day celebrated on December 2nd every year commemorates the day that all the seven emirates came together officially to form the United Arab Emirates. This is also the day that the Emirates cut ties with the British Protectorate when the treaty expired in 1971, thus ending UK’s control over the Arab monarchies. The seven kingdoms or Emirates then came together to form one federal nation which was then headed by HH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
Since then, every December 2nd has been witnessing grand celebrations, air shows and even military parades to commemorate the day. This year too will be no different, as the nation has planned a spectacular firework show, parades and more among other celebratory events.
