Christmas Blog Post

I come from Singapore where we celebrate many festivals because we are such a cosmopolitan country. The main 4 festivals which are celebrated by the majority are Chinese New Year, Deepavali, Eid Al-Fitr and Christmas. Christmas is always so festive, there will be lights according to the traditional colors like green, white and red all over the country. Sometimes, the lights will come in the form of a Christmas tree. There will be huge lit up Christmas trees in the town area. The festive season calls for Christmas-y food and drinks in restaurants and cafes. It so happens that my father’s birthday falls on Christmas so we get lots of free goodies from his colleagues as well. This is my first-time spending Christmas in Kent. I know Christmas here will be bigger than in Singapore. It is definitely going to be different this time away with family but I am really looking forward to it this year!
