Since this is one of the first winter breaks spent with just immediate family instead visiting relatives in the States, we've had the chance to think about traditions we'd like to have of our own. I have to admit, it was really nice to be completely separated from the consumerism of December in the States. It was like any other day in the U.A.E. except temperatures have been in the 60-70 degree range instead of 100's.
Cinnamon-raisin bread: it tastes like a cinnamon roll, but you slice it as you go. It was delicious.
