One million dollars literally rained down from the sky in Dubai this month.

It’s like a fairytale.

On Feb 11th this year, the city of Dubai had a million dollars in cold, hard cash rain down from the sky.

And no one knows what happened.

Traffic came to a standstill in the Jumeirah area of Dubai as hundreds of drivers jumped out of their cars and ran around on the highway, picking up the notes that were flying through the air. Thousands of 500 UAE Dirham notes – worth about AU$175 each – were caught in the wind.

This child may or may not have been responsible.

Drivers were able to grab handfuls of cash (though they had to chase it down first), with estimations that between two and three million Dirham was loose – about AU$1,000,000.

Close your eyes and picture it for a second. Sigh. That’s a lot of airborne dough.

Money, money, money: How to save money and still have a life.

One woman was able to capture it on her camera phone. The people in the video look surprisingly dignified. We probably would have covered ourselves in honey or double-sided tape and run in all directions as fast as possible. But hey, each to their own.

Officials have yet to give an explanation. THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. Shrug. Just another day in Dubai.

We like to think it was the tooth fairy. Or Glenda the good witch. Or Dumledore, playing games with muggles. Or Eddie Maguire.

Whoever it was, we request your presence (and presents) in Australia, ASAP.
