T’is the Season to be Jolly!

T’is the Season to be Jolly!

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
in the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
we’re happy tonight,
walking in a winter wonderland.

I love Christmas!! The festive feel, the carols, the decoration… Except that it’s no winter wonderland here. But the strong air-conditioning everywhere kind of makes up for it. What’s lacking is the fluffy white snow!

The streets and malls have started their annual ritual of Christmas dressing up. They have quite outdone themselves this year! Maybe it’s due to their overflowing coffers of the bumper year. I wish it’s my coffer that’s overflowing though. But if you walk down Orchard Road, it’s truly a sight to be behold (minus the ever present traffic snarl).

I’m starting this series featuring Christmas decorations. We are happy to receive any picture of Christmas decoration, be it of your home, your office, the streets or the malls.

Let me kick start it with :

Suntec City!

Candy theme! Kids will love it, why I love it myself! Feels like a section of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory (I was a huge Roald Dahl fan! I still am!)

Close ups of the yummy candy bars. (well, as close as I can. It’s only a phone camera and not a dslr)

Little ones on the ceilings.

The finale – Christmas tree!! I still like the huge candy bars dangling from the roof best! I’ve seen grander Christmas trees though.

Stay tuned for more!
