Gnomes, festive blooms, and a towering Dutch town hall at Garden’s by the Bay Poinsettia Wishes 2020.
This was the final leg of my Tuesday visit to Gardens by the Bay. Since the event has already been ongoing for a while, I’ll keep this pictorial post short.
Poinsettia Wishes, as most Singaporeans would know, is GBTB’s annual festive showpiece for Christmas. Like most such events, it has also progressively gotten more and more elaborate over the years. For example, last year’s exhibition featured several replicas of famous Scandinavian architectural landmarks.
Being an indoor event, this year’s show isn’t much affected by social distancing measures too. As I highlighted in my previous festive post, the strictly enforced time-slot actually thinned the crowds and made photo-taking way easier.
Here and there, I still had to wait for other visitors to move away before doing my thing. But it was never more than a minute, and always under spacious conditions.
A Festive Indoor European Christmas
By the way, these long-beard ones aren’t really gnomes. They are Nisse, a Scandinavian mythological being associated with the winter solstice and Christmas.
Poinsettia Wishes 2020 is ongoing till Jan 3, 2021. Check out the details here!
