'Jingle Bells' is one of the best known Christmas songs in the world yet its history tells us that is not specifically a Christmas song. Known today as a fun and laughter filled Christmas song. The tune of 'Jingle Bells' has been used in German and French songs to celebrate winter fun
'Jingle Bells' continues to be a Christmas favorite song whether sung in its original form or whether by parody, it is still popular throughout the world today. A song that brings families and communities together sharing good cheer and holiday fun at Christmas time each year!
We have been very busy with our work from Jan 2013. Now, it is time to take a break, celebrate Christmas Party and make friends
Its the end of the year and what is the best way to celebrate a Christmas Party?
Come down and party the night away meeting cool, new friendly people. Its an amazing way to network, meet like minded people, make new friends of your liking over drinks and look for a date if you wish.
NO CHRISTMAS PARTY IS COMPLETE WITHOUT SANTA CLAUSE AND EXCHANGE OF GIFTS
The name Santa Claus evolved from Nick's Dutch nickname, Sinter Klaas, a shortened form of Sint Nikolaas (Dutch for Saint Nicholas)
Santa Claus is portrayed as a kindly, round bellied, merry bespectacled man in a red suit trimmed with white fur, with a long white beard. On Christmas eve, he rides in his flying sleigh (pulled by reindeer) from house to house to give presents.
During the rest of the year, he lives at the North Pole, in Finnish Lapland, or Dalecarlia in Sweden (traditions vary) together with his wife, Mrs. Claus, and his elves who serve as his toy production staff.
Exchange of Christmas Gifts.
Gift-giving, has been an important part of the Christmas celebration since the holiday's rejuvenation in the early 19th century.
We are also having a "Exchange Gifts with your new friends" so please do bring small gift(s) (minimum value of S$10/- each) to exchange with your newly made friends
Date: 20 Dec 2013 , 7:00pm onwards
