Given the theme for this celebration is “God’s Love, Man Hope”, with the purpose of bringing all community, regardless of their difference in race and religion, to celebrate the Christmas Celebration together on this event. For this year Christmas Celebration, there are a variety of exciting performances which showcases cultural diversity, classical, as well as modern elements. Apart from that, there are also local and international artists invited to perform during the event too.
What makes everyone looking forward to this joyous Christmas Celebration (me being one of them), was the stalls during the event; vendors selling a variety of food and drinks, as well as featuring their Christmas element into their display and designs to bring out the Christmas spirit. I am glad to say that I got a chance to visit the Christmas Celebration this year. It was truly an eye-opening event, where you can see many stalls selling a variety of foods and drinks, Christmas delicacies, preloved stuff, Christmas gifts, Christmas Choirs, as well as some exciting games.
Despite it raining since the first day of the event, it did not stop the crowd coming to enliven the Christmas Celebration. Here are some of the pictures that I have taken during the event:
