7 ways to celebrate Christmas in Singapore + A Christmas gift from us!





Christmas has always been a favourite season in the household . It is not just about the Christmas gifts we receive and give , but about the blessings of the season and the origin of Christmas to celebrate the Birth  of Christ. It is also a season where many celebrate regardless of religion . Christmas is a time for many to mark the end of the year , a time to check if a child is naughty or nice ( for the presents) and an opportunity for families to gather.


So how do you celebrate Christmas in Singapore ? 

We may not have a single drop of Snow , but at each Christmas , you would see the streets and malls all deck out .  Here are some Christmas activities you can do in Singapore !


1 Build your own Christmas tree
A must have ( at least in our household ) Setting the Christmas tree is an annual family activity that both parents and kids enjoy.


Need some tips on how to build the tree ?


2 See Christmas lights in Singapore

If you think setting up your own tree takes too much effort , head outdoors to catch these Christmas light up instead.

The 2 main spots for Christmas Lights would be  Gardens by the Bay and Orchard Road

GBTB Christmas Wonderland
Orchard Road Christmas on a Great Street


3 Make a Gingerbread House

Gingerbread houses are associated  with Christmas . Make your own at Shangri La The Line Shop annual Gingerbread house workshop . Held every weekend in December before Christmas , book your slots before it disappears. It's great fun for the family to bond with their very own Gingerbread House

If you are having a Christmas party or gathering  at home, it will not be complete without a log cake. It's best you book your cake early for the Christmas party Here are some selections for you to choose from

4 Have a Christmas meal with family

While some may opt for the cosy comforts of home , others will head out to have a family meal. We love the idea of having a cozy Christmas theme family meal. If you are looking for something that is under $100 for a family of 4, we reckon Fish and Co would make an excellent choice with its 'Tis the Seafood Season' platter.


With a seafood platter filled with white fish, prawns, blue mussels and scallops in butternut cream sauce, it is a delectable meal with Truffle chips and refreshing Mocktails on the side.

Having a Christmas meal to usher in Christmas is almost a tradition in Singapore. After all we love food and Christmas is a great excuse to feast.

7) Shop for Christmas presents 

Last but no least , while you are out , don't forget to shop for the gifts for you love ones . It does not matter what you get, it is the thought that counts  and if you insist , we would be delighted to receive some gifts from you too ... just kidding lah.

We do have a special gift to one of our readers from the warm generosity of Fish and Co.
