I think he means the cannon that tells us that the sun has set and it is time to break the daily fast.

I saw it being towed around the Marina the other day - I thought it was normally stationed down at the Creek.

Is there only one cannon for the whole of Dubai? I can hear it every evening, on the 45th floor, through closed glass windows.

I've never even heard of the cannon... maybe that's due to being a Mirdifian.

Just got an announcement from my company ref Eid. Either we get Thurs off or we get sweet FA, obviously depending on the moon! Tight Yankee mother f**kers!

Do you permit non-Christians to celebrate Christmas?

Take any holidays you can, it makes no diference whether believer or non believer, toleration is the key. Everyone to their own, enjoy the short life we have and let others enjoy theirs.
