SPENDING CHRISTMAS ABROAD CAN BE both awesome and super depressing. I spent one Christmas in London, which, to be honest, was pretty great — Christmas markets, mulled wine, great food, cozy pubs — but it was also a pretty huge bummer to Skype home and see my family all sitting together opening presents without me.

The way I fought the Christmas Blues was by going out and getting a proper English Christmas turkey with friends and celebrating Christmas the English way. So if you’re abroad this year and you want to celebrate the holidays like the locals do, Fly Abu Dhabi has put together this guide to what the local delicacies are over Christmas in countries around the world. Happy Holidays!
