Bah Humbug!

It's that time of the year when any non-hermit Scrooge living in Singapore will ask, while battling the alternate tropical heat and monsoon rains, why we celebrate Christmas here.

Most of us don't enjoy the traditional elements of Christmas:
enough snow to build a snowman and make a snowangel


the fragrance of a live Christmas tree filling our living room


a beautiful wreath on our door


stockings filled with presents at the end of our beds


roasting chestnuts by the open fire


sharing a roast turkey, digging out the steaming stuffing and topping it with cranberry sauce


drinking hot eggnog


decorating a gingerbread house


kissing under a mistletoe



Alright...obviously an excuse to put some pix up... :-)
