February 24th – The following two days (February 25th and 26th) will spell big celebration here in the State of Kuwait. 25th February will be the 52nd Anniversary of the Independence Day from the British Rule, while 26th February marks the Liberation of Kuwait from the 1991 Gulf invasion by Iraq.
The twin celebration, as I would like to call this, is characterized by large crowds in malls, leisure parks, beaches and other places of interests. Kuwaiti nationals waving flags outdoors is a common sight during this time.
However, there are some who spend time in their homes with visiting relatives, who like them, consider these holidays a time for family gatherings and reunions.
As an OFW blogger, I’ve seen continuous progress here in the host country since I first came several years ago, like steady and interesting infrastructure. Independence and mutual understanding truly lead to rapid growth and development.
