Are you ready?

16 December 2006

The new Everly Hotel in Sibu will be celebrating its FIRST Christmas tomorrow!

Ready or not, Christmas is coming! How is your preparation for Christmas?

Christmas procession this year people mountain people sea

This is how the Sibu Townsquare looked like after being invaded by Christians in Sibu joining the annual procession. Looked like street party was about to begin.

I had the chance to join this year's Christmas procession. This was taken before the sun set. It was 6.30pm and a lot of kiasu people already arrived here because didn't want to get stuck in road blocks. I'm one of them! Hehehe!

The Band in front of us

Lucky for us, we did not have to sing carols during the whole procession as the band in front of us jingle all the way loudly.

Seemed like everybody in Sibu was in town

The left side was the Sibu town's people. The right side was the Christians joining the procession.

The procession was short. Road had been blocked around town to give way for us to spread the Good News of the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ around the town. But to most people, this is the chance to get out of the house and relax in town. A happy time for the kids because they get to receive sweets from the Santa Clauses and Santarinas from the procession. That was if the kids stand near enough in front to snatch the sweets thrown by the Santas.

Well, this was one of the meaningful things I've done for Christmas after being back for a few days. Peace!
