You might notice this year I haven’t posted anything about Kuwaiti Independence Day(s) this year. In my 5th year studying in the US, I realized that national events like Hala February or even religious like Eid don’t hold much meaning as they used to. Sure the accessiblity of these events are much better than they were when I first came but its the environment that kills it. (Al-Watan stream the Hala February concert now). Then I realized that the same goes to Kuwait. Every year I hear that there are less people staying in Kuwait during events like these every year. No one celebrates Independence Day in Kuwait anymore, people consider it just like any other holiday; a chance to travel. In the US, Feb 25th and 26th are just like every other day, normal. Sooner or later, I can imagine how Kuwait will be during those days as well. Just my 2 fils (lame I know) which deserves an ultimate meh to the future.
