Christmas in Singapore is a time to light up the city with decorations

Trudy Nearhos, Communications
“We landed in Singapore at Christmas time three years ago, so this year we plan to re-visit all the special places we first discovered on arrival. Burgers on Orchard Road, followed by a stroll to see the Christmas lights and a very relaxing Christmas morning beachside.”

Deborah Gillies, Advertising “If you’re thinking of eating Christmas dinner at home with the family this year, order a turkey cooked to perfection with all the trimmings from The Fullerton Hotel. We had the most amazing meal that fed eight people, plus plenty of leftovers for turkey pie and sandwiches. Amazing value and you don’t have to be stuck
in the kitchen!’

Welcome friends to your home

Kerry Low, ANZA GM
“Every year our Singapore family gathers together on Christmas Eve to celebrate. We are eight nationalities from five couples and everyone brings a traditional Christmas dish to share from their home country.”

Adam Martin, ANZA President
“My pick for Christmas lunch is Capella Singapore – they serve an amazing lunch, with a brilliant kids club to keep little ones entertained on the day. We also go to Cluny Court as a family ritual and get our photo taken with Santa Claus in the Christmas lead up.”

Homemade gingerbread cookies – for snacking or decorating!

Christina Lim, Design
“Feasting on Christmas gammon hams and homemade gingerbread cookies are the highlights for me every Christmas. Gathering with friends is also at the peak during this period – tiring but a worthy and fruitful time.”

Pip Harry, Editor
“Our tradition is to have an early Christmas day swim at the beach or pool and egg and bacon rolls for breakfast. One year we went to a traditional Christmas Eve dinner with all the trimmings at W Hotel in Sentosa, taking the cable car over to the island. The next day we celebrated with local food at a hawker. You can really mix it up here!”

Megan Scott, Committee Member
“I had my first and only live Christmas tree five years ago when my family came here for Christmas. It was such a treat to walk around the nursery and pick out my tree – just like I’d seen in so many American Christmas TV shows and movies.”
