We all love to find symbolism in things. Some people search for meaning in the simplest of things, such as the reason why a particular flower blooms red.

Some people genuinly wanted to know what's up with the Old Timey circus lights. First of all, NO, the circus isn't in town. Second of all, they sure look pretty don't you think? 

The lights represent someone from the family just got married and this is their way of celebrating. Lights aren't colorful, they're typically normal yellowish lights. 

Next time you see your neighbour's house covered in lights, maybe you should pass by and say congratulations :)

Let's face it, one of your least favourite things to do in Qatar is to drive. Some people think that indicating is an option, some people think it's alright to play connect the dots with cars while on the highway, and worse yet, some people think that turning left while they're on the far right lane is actually ok.
