Christmas Comes to Orchard Road

The weather outside’s not frightful, and my dear, the scene’s delightful.

This is Orchard Road in Singapore — a shopping mecca that puts on spectacular displays of holiday decoration that could rival the festivity of the North Pole. From what I understand, the malls along Orchard Road compete for the best decoration display. I took what pictures I could as the displays went up. My favorite is shown above, but it was the entirety of the Christmas decoration everywhere that made the whole thing special.

It's hard to see here, but there's a big purple tree next to the Charlie Brown Cafe and it makes me think of the aluminum trees in the Peanuts Christmas special.

  1. Love the first picture with those trees! But then all the pictures look great too so I can’t really choose. The malls here have started decorating too but it’s apparent Singapore wins the contest on this. 😉

  2. Juliann, we spent the holidays in Asia last year, and I was impressed by the lovely lights throughout the region. Your photos transported me back to that wonderful trip; thank you! How long have you been in Singapore?
