COVID-19 is nothing short of a pain.

Jobs lost, events cancelled and for a while, not even allowing us to meet up or eat out.

It might not be easy to stay positive during this period, but there’s at least one little thing we can look forward to still.

Namely, the Christmas light-up in Orchard Road.

Light Ups to Continue

There’ll be a little bit of a change, though.

The Orchard Road Business Association (ORBA) recently released a statement confirming that there will still be Christmas lights this year.

The display will take place from 13 November to 1 January.

“This year’s Christmas Light-Up theme, “Love This Christmas”, is a reminder that no physical distance should stop anyone from showing love to those they care about.”

It is also dedicated to frontliners in recognition of their contributions and sacrifices.

However, adjustments will be made to make the event safer for the public.

For starters, Christmas on A Great Street has been altered greatly.

There will be no Great Christmas Village this year, which used to have food, amusement rides, games and performances.

“Christmas on A Great Street is an event that many look forward to every year as it brings
people together to celebrate the holidays and season of giving. We are grateful to be able to continue this long-established tradition, albeit on a more modest scale.”

Safety first, after all.

Another Alternative For Viewers

In fact, there’s an option for those who want to bask in the lights without going out: online.

The lighting display can be viewed through a 360-degree virtual tour.

The light-up ceremony, which will be held by ORBA and Community Chest, will be a private event at Ion Orchard shopping mall. It will be officiated by President Mdm Halimah Yacob, at ION Orchard.

This too will be live-streamed on Community Chest’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Kilometres of Decorations

Decorations will stretch from Tanglin Mall to Dhoby Gaut.
