Christmas in Singapore is a big celebration that gives locals another excuse to do what they love most—Eat and shop.

The famous shopping belt on Orchard Road is spectacularly lit up every December to ramp up the festive mood, and serves as a blazing reminder to hit the malls.

Meanwhile, Christmas spreads and Yuletide menus pop up at restaurants across the island, giving a festive twist to an already impressive dining scene.

It’s not all indulgence though.

At its heart, the holiday is still a special day for Christians in Singapore, who attend Christmas service in commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It’s a religious celebration like any other, and regardless of your religious beliefs, everyone gets to take part in the fun of frolicking in fake snow, men in santa suits and of course, Christmas presents!

What's Unique

A Christmas feast, Singapore style

As one would expect from Singapore’s melting pot of different cultures and religions, Christmas in our city comes with its own unique Asian twists. Family get-togethers and bouts of feasting are common, and traditional dishes like turkey tend to get a good dose of local flavour, with Asian seasonings and herbs such as ginger and chilli.
