There are some holidays Singapore does fantastically: Chinese New Year, for example; Diwali; National Gin Day*. Others – such as Christmas, and Easter – not so much. (It’s too hot, the Christmas trees die and the chocolate eggs melt.) And then there’s Halloween – which is done brilliantly, but only on a date convenient to the general population. If you’re lucky, this will coincide with October 31st; otherwise – well, good luck finding an occasion to wear that ugly witch’s hat you just bought in Cold Storage.
(*Ok, maybe that’s one we’ve started. But we’re confident it’s going to catch on. We just need to settle on a day. Because just ONE DAY out of 365? Tricky.)
