Why you should not miss out on Christmas in Singapore
Christmas in Singapore is unique in all possible ways. First, the cosmopolitan population of Singapore gives festivals a unique touch. People from different cultural backgrounds come together to share love during the festive season. Secondly, the climate and surrounding of the city are not at all Christmassy. We associate Christmas with winter, snowfall, sledges, pine trees and reindeer. However, Singapore, being situated near the equator, the weather is always sunny and bright. Moreover, the flora and fauna also do not match that of the temperate zone. These unique characteristics of Singapore make Christmas celebration more fun.
