The Irish Village will deliver an early gift this year with its illuminating Christmas tree lights switch-on.

The switch will be hit on December 6 and 7, with the festivities running over two consecutive nights from 6.30pm at the popular Al Garhoud venue.

It’s amazing how quickly Christmas comes around each year. For many of us, the festive month creeps up out of nowhere.

Now that the Christmas season is beckoning, there’s no better way to ring in the festive season than a tree lighting ceremony. Nothing marks the start of Christmas like a towering, tinsel-clad fir draped in fairy lights and dripping with baubles.
