The theme of this year's tree (I didn't realise trees had themes) was Merry Nutcracker Joy Ride. Amazing works of crafted sugarpieces of Nutcracker soldiers and trains are stacked up on a conical steel structure to form the 12-foot-tall Christmas Tree.
Quite a joy to behold....even before it was lighted up.
The event was preceded by High Tea at Lemon Garden, unbeknownst to me, the event was a charity, to raise funds for 10 children with severe heart ailments, and also as a treat for over 100 disadvantaged children from Tasputra Perkim and Pusat Penjagaan Kanak Kanak Cacat Taman Megah, and children from the UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees).
Incidentally, The sugarpieces are for sponsorship by donors, each for a minimum donation of RM1,000/-. The donors’ names or company logos will be prominently displayed against each sugarpiece.
And the tree is lit...and the trains go round and round!!!!
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
