Christmas and New Year Feasting Ideas

Since young, Christmas holds a very important place in my heart as it is a celebration of the birth of of Jesus Christ. Nowadays, Christmas is celebrated by people around the world, whether you are Christians or not. This is in fact the season of gift-giving, sharing and joy where everyone makes time for their loved ones and friends to gather and to bond. As a Singaporean, food plays a big part of my life. So here I am to share with you some Christmas and New Year feasting ideas where you can enjoy a yummilious wonderful time.
