“Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.”

We all get a different feeling around Christmas, don’t we? Somehow there is a slight shift in the air, everything in the world takes on a different glow.  Christmas isn’t a season, it’s a feeling.  We all anticipate the season with a sense of hope, a sense that something good is around the corner.  The deliberate planning of a crib, gifts under a tree and bright red Christmas decorations are the visuals of Christmas.  The aroma of food always lingers with the echoes of carols with family. All of this makes the essence of Christmas a beautiful memory, poignant and nostalgic.

“Like snowflakes, my Christmas memories gather and dance—each beautiful, unique, and gone too soon.”

Christmas is a celebration the world over

Millions of people look forward to the festive season as a time to connect with family, friends and even co-workers.   It’s always a time for celebration, bonding, and food.  Like all festivals, Christmas too revolves around traditional food and exotic cultural dishes.  Every country has their own unique cultures and tradition that has been built around Christmas.  In Italy on Christmas Eve, the feast of the seven fishes is celebrated.  This includes a serving of calamari, spaghetti with clam sauce, octopus, tuna, salmon, swordfish and the famous baccala.  In Singapore, Christmas is magical, Christmas trees stream Orchard Road that is lit up like the Northern Lights.   There’s soft music and occasional carolling. There’s turkey, beef brisket and ham.  Esseplore understands the culture of Singapore and this time we have planned much ahead to make Christmas traditional and joyous.  Our  Christmas FeastBox is ready and packed with lots of delicious Christmas dishes.

A time for family

For those who look forward to Christmas time as a time for gathering with family, then it’s important to plan ahead so that everything falls together for Christmas. For people who like to cook at home, planning ahead reduces the feeling of being overwhelmed.  For those who do not like to cook, Esseplore has designed some festive offers that are traditional and tasty.  Our  Christmas FeastBox has an amazing platter of smoked beef brisket, smoked turkey breast, smoked ham served with roasted brussels sprouts truffle and Grana Padano, baby potato and salad bacon vinaigrette dressing.  Of course, we have included the much-in-demand Christmas cake.  Sometimes, it feels like all one needs at Christmas is a good plate for food.  


This Christmas you can change the way you celebrate

Not everyone likes Christmas to be a noisy, crowded affair.  Christmas can be a quiet, calm affair too and still be festive. For those who feel too much pressure about throwing a party or being part of a social celebration, a quiet evening with good food can also be a way to celebrate.  Changing the way Christmas is celebrated is a personal choice.  Dedicating the day to a passion or a hobby or trying to fulfil a long-term dream will certainly be better than being crammed with a long list of things to do.  Choosing a favourite corner to read and enjoying a quiet Christmas meal can also be a way to celebrate.  Esseplore has made it easy for people to chill this Christmas.  Our Christmas platter includes a Christmas FeastBox and a Christmas Gourmand box that are on special offers.
