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

Right after the entrance. It’s a luminous prologue to the show!
Close-up of the opening showpiece. Gonna say it once more. Nutcrackers are seriously the in-thing this Christmas in Singapore.
Overview of the festive centrepiece. It’s really a Christmas wonderland of lights within the Flower Dome, ain’t it?
A closer view at the festive centrepiece.
The festive centrepiece is meticulously presented to resemble a Christmas village. The houses and snowy landscape are positively gorgeous.
These guys were all over the Flower Dome last year too. Looks that they were popular enough to be invited again.

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.

The star attraction this year is a replica of Gouda Townhall. I’ve already shown the front view in my feature pic above. Here’s the rearview. (Check out the details of the façade)
Last but not least, some very unusual Christmas trees right before the exit.

Poinsettia Wishes 2020 is ongoing till Jan 3, 2021. Check out the details here!
