Celebrations Really?



What I have noticed recently is that people have been using the memory of Sheikh Jaber and other past Sheikhs of Kuwait to plaster stickers across their windows. Whats sad is that very few might be patriotic the most are just using it as an excuse to have their car completely tinted. It doesn’t seem that celebratory to me, and the decorations that our government puts up is the same lights that they have put up since 1991. Its not as if this isn’t our independence day and our liberation day, there should be an event to remember the Kuwaitis that passed away fighting for Kuwait during the Gulf War and remembering our POWs.

I remember when I used to look forward to these two days to celebrate proud days in Kuwait’s history, and for some reason it feels like it has just been turned into an administrative holiday and nothing else now. Maybe I’m asking for too much, but I really do wish the government would get it’s act together and we can get Kuwait back on track.

  1. thats a good point. maybe instead of decorating the water towers with the silly girly lights they should have just lit them all yellow.

    I know it is sad, isn’t it? But I dont think that’s gonna happen anytime soon marzouq- unfortunately. I just got back from shalleh late at night yesterday, and it wasn’t one of those good shalleh days- u know? ‘Hooligans’ as you put it were everywhere and it was simplly beyond being nationally happy! I almost killed 3 kids on the road while driving there. No supervision, 6 year olds and under running around the hightways aimlessly without any sense of being hit by a car. I was driving literally below 60 and on the edge of my seat! hehe…

    But u know? It’s not just kuwait. I remember even in the states during the 4th of July, it’s not like it used to be. I remember driving from Cali to San Diego and the roads were similar to here- exaggerated nationalism- minus the 6 year olds of course hehe… Even some of my family members that live there say it’s just not like it used to be 15 to 20 years ago.

    Oh btw thanks for the tip on the Premium Book. I’ll try to see if my brother can take me 2 hawally. ma3arif akasir well hnak :P hehe

    *beverly hills, cali to san diego – (women and maps :P)

  4. Mark: yeah, there needs to eb something! Its not as if it didn’t happen, and now we know they all passed away, but we should remember them.

    Missy: I know what you mean, they are all running around without any supervision and your scared to drive afraid you might hit them. It isn’t like it used to be and thats why I avoid it these days. Staying home was a good thing! But at least 4th of July there are some organized festivities and there are the insane ones, we just have the insanity with no real feeling! loool! I knwe what you meant, I assumed LA! hehehe

Holy cow! %#^# i don’t even know where I was- lol and that wasnt’ even long ago and i’m only 25!! I swear- me so bad- with area names and roads!! I still get lost bmana6ig il3a9ima ='[

  6. Missy! looool! I think you mean LA because the capital of California is Sacremento but very few people know that because its filled with cows and nothing much! hehehe

  7. Missy-TheOriginal

    Really? LOL … That’s interesting! I’d love to see the cows though =P

  8. Missy: Seeing them is fine, but smelling them is problem, all they do is eat in the huge fields so you can imagine the smell driving down the highway! looooool!

  9. i agree there should be a day for POW’s but one that is organized and has some meaning to it

  10. Missy-TheOriginal

  11. Ur right dude..what’s happening is sick…we should always remember those who died for the sake of our country…

  12. Laialy: yes I agree!
