UAE National Day Celebration in Dubai 1986
National Day is celebrated from 2 December each year in United Arab Emirates for two days or more (usually the 2nd and 3rd). It marks the UAE’s formal nationalization from the British Protectorate Treaties which ended on December 1, 1971 and the eventual, federal unification of the seven emirates in 1971 which combined to form the modern-day country.
All the emirates in the U.A.E have grand celebrations. On 2 December 2012, a street named “Al Diyafah street” was named “2nd December street” . Every year on that street people bring snow sprays and paint sprays in order to celebrate the national day. They spray it on each other and on cars. Many malls in the U.A.E decorate the malls and sell souvenirs and items related to the National day.
