Travelling out of Singapore is out of the question. Thanks to Gardens by the Bay, you can experience a slice of European-holiday cheer with the return of Poinsettia Wishes. I would recomment to visit the floral display during the evening when the entire field is being lit up.
A reimagined Gouda City Hall, an iconic landmark in the Netherlands visited by many for its Christmas candle light-up, decked with nutcracker dolls that resemble toy soldiers. Gouda by Candlelight, also known as Kaarsjesavond, is an annual Christmas tradition held in the city of Gouda, surrounding the Gothic Goudse Stadhuis, also known as the townhall. During the festive season, the building is typically accompanied with a Christmas tree, an annual gift from its Norwegian sister city, Kongsberg.
The nutcracker dolls from German folklore represent strength and are believed to serve as protectors of the house. They are typically given as keepsakes to bring good luck and protection to families.
Luminarie Light Sculptures
The all-time favourite luminaries! Traditionally, luminaries or farolito in Spanish, were small paper lanterns made out of coloured paper with candles. They are typically designed and arranged to create huge and elaborate displays. Over the years, LED lights have replaced lit candles.
Nope they are not gnomes. The Nisse is a mythological creature from Nordic folklore solitary; looks much like a cross between a gnome and Santa Claus! They are mischievous domestic sprite who protects and looks after the farm and its household. Decked in a red or blue sweater, with a distinctive pointy hat, knitted stockings and knee breeches, a nisse looks much like a cross between a gnome and Santa Claus!
The origin of Christmas tree dated back to the ancient times. People brought evergreen trees, plants, and leaves into their homes upon the arrival of the winter solstice to celebrate the return of life at the start of the decline of winter.
