Every so often, you see a house covered in lights here in Qatar. It isn't any particular day to you and me, but it looks beautiful. My understanding is that for big milestone events (births, weddings, etc.) families cover their house in lights for the celebration. I keep intending on taking a picture of one of these houses, but I always forget and then they take the lights down. Here is a truck either on the way to set up lights or returning from taking them down. A little different than your few bags of Christmas lights.
