Near the visitor centre in the Singapore Botanical Garden you will find a Christmas tree in traditional Norwegian style. The ‘Norwegian’ tree is one of close to 300 tropical trees that have been decorated by various local and expatriate organizations in Singapore.
The Norwegian Embassy invites all to visit the “Trees of the World” exhibition to see a glimpse of what Christmas in Norway is like. The exhibition is open until 1 January 2012 and is spectacular in the evening when the lights are on.
“The tree is decorated according to Norwegian traditions – with a few additional creative touches, such as showing pictures of children in Norwegian national costumes,” writes the Norwegian Embassy.
You can vote for your favorite tree, too. Forms are located at the visitor desks at the Botany Centre at Tanglin Gate, at the Visitor Centre at Nassim Gate and at Jacob Ballas Children’s. You can also email your vote to NParks_SBG_Visitor_Services@nparks.gov.sg including your name, NRIC and mobile number.
Voting is on until 23.00 on 21 December 2011.
