on a grainy night

I was having double thoughts on sharing these photos with you guys because they were taken at night without proper lighting, hence grainy. But to heck with that. I decided I like them too much to be put to waste, so here they are.

In case you're wondering, the answer is no, it doesn't snow in Macau. I was surprised to see this part of the Venetian too, believe me. After window shopping at the Grand Canal shops, Penguin and I went looking for a spot to take photos for the usual outfit post when we came across this area right outside the main lobby. Like huh? What is going on out here???
... And then it started snowing! The wind blew mildly as we walked past people happily taking photos of one another. On the other end was a temporary rink where two girls were blithely clinging to each other. I positioned myself in the middle of a bridge ready for snaps and that's when I spotted the huge Christmas tree across the man made river... all lit up in blue lights; it's Christmas balls shining like bright stars in the dark sky. All the while, I realized what was making the atmosphere so welcoming and pleasant was the jazzy Christmas carols playing in the air. It hit me - this is what I've always imagined how a perfect Christmas setting would be! If only everything were real...

Now don't be confused. These things were done intentionally for amusement... and they (the Venetian) succeeded anyway, for we were amused. But what made me happier is that, every year, I never really feel the Christmas spirit in Macau, not only until Christmas Eve/Day themselves. Obviously it has something to do with cultural issues, being a Chinese city with multiple cultural influences and all (despite being overly decorated every year). That night though, I felt it in the air. It was good =)

How about you guys? Do you feel the Christmas spirit already?

    We have tons of snow and cold, but it definitely makes it feel like christmas, so I guess I can't complain!! A warm christmas would be bizarre to me!
