The Gulf News photographers have been clicking some wonderful pictures in the UAE.
One gallery illustrates what Eid means in different parts of the world but the Eid in the Emirates gallery caught my attention.
The photos show Eid celebrations including prayers, painting henna designs, children at play, old and young around the BBQ, family get-togethers in the park and on the beaches, meeting and greeting relatives and friends, expats keeping in touch with the rellies at home.
