Christmas in the Tropics

Even though Singaporeans don’t get to experience the four seasons, much less snow, we definitely know how to celebrate this joyful time . Christmas in the Tropics is a month-long festival that takes the carnival to the streets in Singapore’s all-year round balmy, summer heat.

Open your eyes on visual display of seasonal decorations, and we’re not just talking about the annual Christmas light up along shopping strip Orchard Road. Shopping centres like Tangs and Takashimaya compete with each other every year with illuminating decorations that seem to sneak magically from the ground level all the way up to the rooftop, while other major malls like Wisma Atria, Orchard Central and ION put on quite a show too.

Street performers in Singapore also go wild in the city, especially on the streets of Orchard Road, with their capers and feats of gravity defying acrobatics. Choirs of engaging children can also be seen and heard angelically carolling, human statues wander around freely and interacting with the crowds and stilt-walkers skip about, always game for a picture or two. So it’s just not about taking photographs with men in bright red fat suits and white beards impersonating Santa Claus.

This is a place where you can watch a fashion show outdoors without getting frostbitten. And for fashion fans, look out for the colourful make-shift stages which are decorated in glittering lights and colourful baubles, all ready for local and regional models to strut across them in the season’s trendiest style offerings — adding to the already bustling festival vibe in the city.
