Fresh Christmas trees bloom in Dubai market

As the December air turns crisp and the days grow shorter, there’s no better way to usher in the festive spirit than by decorating homes with Christmas trees. Streets of Satwa are bustling with Christmas shoppers negotiating with sellers for their fresh trees.

All the way from Canada, the trees line up this Dubai market, transforming it into a winter wonderland and filling the air with a fresh, pinene aroma.

Every year during the season, residents from all over the UAE head to Satwa for the perfect centerpiece for their home decorations. Whether it’s a small corner tree or a towering floor-to-ceiling masterpiece, shoppers can be spoiled for choice to make their homes look merry and bright.

Carolina Borges, a Polish expat living in Al Jaddaf, was among the many who visited the Satwa market to shop for their tree. A physiotherapist by profession, Borges shared, “For the last few years, I have been coming to the market to get a fresh Christmas tree for my house. I have already picked out my tree for this year.
