Christmas Season Over, New Festivities Emerge

The Christmas season is now over with 2016 already upon us. But festivities continue as celebrations take another dimension.

I visited both Orchard Road and Serangoon Road yesterday. The Christmas adornments on Orchard Road were still intact but could be replaced with the Chinese New Year flavour this week.

This is Day 2 of the New Year which promises to hold greater charm for us than most of the earlier ones. The positive air is, of course, based on reason!
