Merry Christmas! What? You think even Thanksgiving is a little too soon to start celebrating the most wonderful time of the year much less the fourth week of October?  You can reset your crazy meter now because it is the holiday season in Singapore! It started when the lights went up on Orchard Road 4 days ago. You know the ones that cross the road in a pretty arch? I think Michigan Ave has them. My first thought was that they were for the Indian holiday Diwali- which was celebrated yesterday (and with a day off work no less!). But  today when I went to work, low and behold, they were still up. After work, I went into Starbucks. Only to find all the signage had changed to colors of red and white.  And the special drinks you ask? Peppermint Mocha and Toffee Butternut! I think they may have mistakenly forgotten the Pumpkin Spice Lattes of Fall! Holy goodness. I am hoping the 'round-the-clock Christmas music I've heard about starts by the weekend when we can listen to it from our new balcony!

Here's a pic of a previous year so you can get the idea...
