Unique Christmas experience.......

Christmas is truly a very unique experience in Singapore. I think we celebrate the seasonal spirit with more enthusiasm than many of those in western countries. Our shopping malls and stores are stocked with traditional Christmas food and a wide array of gifts. The beautiful window decorations, colourful lighting, music, together with big video screenings of movie trailers and advertisements, and also not forgetting the heavily decorated hotels bring Christmas cheer to all. Of course the highlights of the season include our phenomenal street light-up, yuletide caroling, fantastic street party and many great performances along Orchard Road. I have always enjoyed driving slowly around these lighted-up roads during this period and my passengers and I have never failed to talk and discuss excitedly about the various pretty decorations and lighting as we pass through. Indeed, it has always been the ultimate season when Singaporeans of all races come together including foreign workers, expats stationed here, as well as visitors from everywhere, unwind in preparation for the new year ahead.
