A tropical little Christmas, with festive lights and good food and music and all, at Gardens by the Bay’s Christmas Wonderland 2022.
So far, I’ve written like, eight Christmas posts this year, and so I’m more than a little Christmas-ed out for the moment. Thanks to that, I wasn’t particularly looking forward to visiting this year’s Christmas Wonderland.
In fact, I only went on Monday evening because I’ve been going every year since 2015 and it just feels so odd not to.
Strange thing then, I ended up staying for over two hours. Took nearly two hundred photos too. I even queued for most of the photo spots, bought something, and, err, had more than one festive drink.
This year’s light displays again being great is one reason, of course. The Spalliera showpiece was expectedly fabulous too, as majestic as ever. But these aside, I think I especially enjoyed this year’s visit because of the crowd; believe it, or not.
It’s like, there were so many happy adults and children about, so many tourists too. Standing there amidst everything, waiting for my food and photo turns, the one thought that came to my mind was, Christmas will be here soon. We made it through another year! Phew!
Let’s be honest. 2022 was yet another “bad” year, wasn’t it? Singapore wasn’t too awfully affected but neither was it any walk in the park.
But somehow, we made it through and can still put up a grand Christmas fair. One with lots of twinkling lights and food stalls and performances and all. This is a reason to be happy and to rejoice, yes?
Not to get maudlin, but gazing at all those fairy lights, everything even felt magical to me.
