The above shows the simple Christmas Tree in 1968. I was 6 years old then. See the difference of the Christmas Tree compared to now. Also take note of the old ‘hi-fi’ set (radio with record player) the Christmas Tree was placed on. Now we are even using the LEDs for the Christmas lights and the decoration looks much better. But again, that was almost 40 years ago when my Godsister and I posed for that photo.
Celebrating Christmas was much simpler and I remember occasionally, my Godsisters would bring me to attend their companies’ children parties. It was the usual lucky dips, magic shows and singing. Orchard Road was not so well decorated compared to now and lots of buildings were still not built yet then.
Note : With this, I end this year 2007 posts. I wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2008 New Year. Hope to see all of you here again in 2008!
