The idea of not knowing the actual date of a holiday 1 month away is new to me and I am hoing someone can explain a few things to me so I might better understand. I read Eid Al Adha is estimated to be on Oct 15 but it depends on the sighting of the moon. What does that mean? The sighting of the moon in what regard? Is it a full moon, in a particular section of the sky? And when will they possible "sight" the moon to know the actual dates of this hoilday? Will it be the day before, a week before or any day now.
With regards to crowds - I read the public sector with get the whole week off...so is there any point for me to attempt to "avoid crowds" at waterparks or malls as plan out our first trip to Dubai.
I really did not want to be ther during a holiday and bascially wasted money on The Entertainer since we will be able to use few of them but trying to make do and understand how it works.
