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... :-)
