Sunday stills: Christmas decorations

This iconic structure of the Auckland Sky Tower is lighted up by different colours. This month it is Christmas lights of blue and red. I did not take photos at night because my little camera is not good enough.






It is summer in New Zealand, people pay money to go inside the ball to get a feel of snow and Santa,



Again, may be it is summer, New Zealanders have picnics on Christmas, and they have teddy bears' picnic.

The snow globe with Santa is so interesting! I also liked the Teddy Bears Picnic. Thanks you for sharing your summertime Christmas with us.

In a certain mall in Singapore, If I recall correctly, they have a snow making machine. It was made of soap bubbles. It gives the children to the tropics an imagination of what snow is like. Adults too like it.

I took my girls there when I was living in Singapore. With the imitation snow falling on the trees. It was indeed a beautiful sight which reminded me of my first winter Christmas in Canada.

I remember now, the Mall is Tanglin mall.

May be Jama may remember taking her sons there.

Oh I would love to visit the snow globe! Of course I have snow here to touch but yours look so much more fun and warmer. I too liked the Teddy Bears picnic, when I was a little girl my mom would pack a picnic and always sang "we're going on a teddy bear's picnic". Great photos of Christmas.
