Best Ever Christmas Present!

What was your favorite Christmas present that you got last year? I know… I know… Christmas season had long gone. But it so happened that Jam had taken a short blogging hiatus last December. Of course you have every right to say that this post is long overdue.

Tell you what; I had received my best ever Christmas present on Christmas Eve of 2012. It is not that we were all still breathing in and out comfortably 3 days after the widely predicted End of the World. As you all know, it just did not happen. My best Christmas present is that my first ever son was born on the Christmas Eve! God is gracious! Thus I named him Ian which means “God is gracious”.

Just 1 week before Ian was born; we went to see Christmas trees on display in Town Square. We had been talking how we wished he would be born on the Christmas Day! Apparently, there was a Christmas trees competition taken place. As far as I know, the competition has been an annual year end event since many years ago. Theme for the year 2012 is environment protection.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at all these Christmas trees!

This Christmas tree caught my eyes!

There were a few of them which used mineral water bottles as main material to build the Christmas tree.

And this Christmas tree is my favorite! It was made of paper cartons, discs, mineral water bottles and many other recycled items. Well done!
