National Day in Riyadh - Two Perspectives

Tuesday was Saudi National Day. National Day’s a public holiday celebrating the 23rd September 83 years ago, when King Abdulaziz created the independent state of Saudi Arabia. Green flags wave cheerfully along the sides of motorways and people converge on streets and in parks for promised festivities and fireworks. Generally speaking, it’s something families enjoy and celebrate together
