The Wonder of Christmas: Christmas Wonderland 2015

As the song goes, "Tis' the season to be jolly... falalala lalala..." Christmas is just round the corner and what is the meaning of Christmas for you?

To many, Christmas is about the Christmas Tree, the presents under the Christmas trees, the beautiful lightings, Santa Claus and many other things you can think of. And indeed, Christmas is the season to be happy, to be jolly.

This year, I went down to the Christmas Wonderland at Gardens By the Bay, with a few others, to soak in the atmosphere of Christmas, to see the lights and to capture moments.

 Carousel which I wanted to take but the rain came halfway into our walk in the evening
and plans halted.

Super trees before we head for dinner.

Stroll back to Gardens by the Bay after dinner. 

Testing out the night scene mode of my Canon S120. 

 Overcast sky but it is just too beautiful.

Effect did not turn out as well as I wanted because the camera was handheld. 

 What can I say? The night and the lights are just mesmerizing.

Can you see the 'snow'?

These photos and memories of Christmas Wonderland 2015 not just allowed me to appreciate the joy Christmas brings but more importantly, to remind myself of my life, given by Christ.

The purpose of Christmas, is to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

In the Bible, Book of Luke Chapter 2 verse 10 reads
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.

The angels said these before Jesus was born. It is through Jesus Christ that we may have life and the relationship with God, the Father.
