Festive Cheer

posted by constance

It is going to be the end of October. For once in Singapore, Christmas decors in Orchard Road are rather late. In the previous years, especially in the 90s, you can see Orchard Road getting dressed in the early stages for Christmas decoration from as early as 2nd week of October. And in the heartland malls there’d be large structures for the preparation too.

Perhaps this time is due to the economy crisis. Many malls have cut down expenses. Our electricity tariffs are going to be high this quarter and it is not pegged to the oil price. So this Christmas, it will be expensive for that Light-up in Orchard Road. But it will still be as brilliant. I have no idea what the theme will be this year.

Christmas is celebrated in a big way in Singapore. Everyone celebrates it here. It is a joyous time for all with lots of gift baskets going around if you are in business. In offices, there will be lots of gift exchange too. Anyone played Santa before?
