Christmas 2012 | More Festive Photos along Orchard Road!

Since her first few shots of the Christmas season, we managed to capture a few more festive shots along Orchard Road :) It is very beautiful with the Christmas decorations up there, but it's also really, reallllllly crowded now. If you are going within these 2 weeks, it's like entering a death trap with all the traffic and pedestrian jams! Don't think we will be heading downtown anymore until Christmas is over.

Thank goodness most of our gift shopping is done! We are going to have an early family celebration this coming weekend since we are leaving for our holiday soon after Boxing Day. On Christmas itself it will be very peaceful... probably just going to stay home and have a movie marathon with popcorn and Christmas goodies :P Ahhhh bliss! 

There are many mini-shops now selling Christmas trims. I love seeing the various decorated trees since ours doesn't really change much yearly heh.

Another one with green and red theme.

Lil Pumpkin with the Paul Frank family! It's so cute seeing mascots and cartoon characters dressed in Christmas costumes, don't you think? Especially those from Lego and Disney!

This is my fave shot so far. The boy and Lil Pumpkin inside the giant Christmas tree outside ION Orchard and pulling on the bell ropes! It's so magical with fairy lights all around!

This is the big tree that they were in for the previous photo.

Well there's just about 1 more week left for Christmas preparations, and I hope everyone is enjoying themselves rather than getting stressed about getting the house tidy for visits, buying presents and expectations of family togetherness. Just remember the wise words of the Grinch {or rather, Dr Seuss},

Happy Holidays! What's your plan for Christmas day?

I Blog on Tues with Essentially Jess.

Those trees are amazing! So many lights and beautiful ornaments. In Perth, the decorations used to be very embarrassing, slowly over the last few years they have been getting better - not quite on that scale though :)
