Feeling the Christmas spirit even before December starts? Here’s a tidbit to keep you anticipating the arrival of this festive season.

This year’s highlight is the ‘Luminarie’, the above up-and-coming sculptures of light that is intricately handcrafted from Italy. Spanning across a total of 57,000 square metres, these structures come together to form a helix shape – the shape of humans’ DNA, and is a deliberate reflection of Christmas as a celebration of life.

What’s Christmas without snow and good food? If you long to visit Germany’s Christmas markets and relish the sound of fresh snow crunching under your feet, here’s your chance because Christmas Wonderland will be bringing them to you! The good news is that this year’s Blizzard Time will be increased from three to five sessions each night, so you’ll never miss the experience of the falling faux snow this yuletide season. This is accompanied by an outdoor skating rink at The Meadow, granting visitors an opportunity to skate under the stars amidst the exquisite Christmas lights.

At Christmas Wonderland, have a hand at some of your good old-fashioned carnival games and revive your childhood memories with exciting carnival rides. Don’t be afraid to overdose on those Christmas pastries sold in food huts along the way, and take time to shop for unique crafts at Singapore’s very own European-inspired festive market.

It’s dinnertime and finger-food is not enough to fill your insatiable tummy. Head over to SAVOUR to experience a more elevated dining experience with your loved ones this Christmas. This year’s collaboration, SAVOUR: Christmas Wonderland hopes to bring you delectable cuisines specially created for this occasion, wine-tasting demonstrations and culinary shopping. Also at The Meadow, top-notch restaurants helmed by Michelin Star chefs include Saint Pierre (Modern European), Shoukouwa (Japanese) and POLLEN and POLLEN Terrace (Modern French).

If you can’t get enough of Christmas after visiting Christmas Wonderland, don’t fret because you can head over to the Flower Dome to appreciate the seasonal floral display. Titled ‘Poinsettia Wishes’, this seasonal display consist of Nordic species such as poinsettias, amaryllis and Christmas trees. And if you’ve been nice this year, you might just get to meet Santa Claus!
