What is your Christmas Inspiration?

Christmas has always been a Winter time for us whether back in India or in USA. The cold wear, cozy hats and blankets, heater and fireplace, with something hot to drink…all this was a usual thing at Christmas time! But when we moved to Singapore it suddenly struck me, Oh! It is going to be hot during Christmas!! At first it was a little strange and we had no idea how it would be like during the Holiday Season back here in Singapore.

But as you get used to the place where you stay we kept an open mind about it and let me tell you we were really surprised by the Christmas decoration, celebration and activities here in Sunny Singapore!

So much to do and so much to explore that one season is not enough to see it all!

You will see a Christmas tree in every store and mall and even the offices. Each Mall decorated with a different theme along with events like Carol singing, activities for kids and charity events and so on.

It is so much fun here in Lion City, from shopping to cultural and religious events!

Although it is not cold but the weather is quite pleasant much cooler than the other months so you can always layer with a light cardigan to get the wintry feel.

People from all cultures come together to participate in this festive occasion. The decorations begin in early November and last through the New Year.
