There’s just something about the holiday season that turns us into gluttons. But, being a glutton this time of year is completely acceptable *winky face*. The food never stops coming. And in a land of gastronomy like Singapore, who can resist a delicious Christmas dinner?   

Christmas is the celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ for Christians but for others, the season has become synonymous with feasts, decorating and gift-giving. The holiday season places a large emphasis on ‘togetherness’, and feasting on a delicious Christmas dinner has paved its way into our culture as a social norm.   

Being at home with your loved ones is what christmas dinner is about

Is that why we do it? Of course not. In a world that runs without stopping, gathering together for a meal becomes almost impossible. Christmas feasts allow you the opportunity to halt for a moment and spend some quality time with your loved ones. Since hospitality and generosity are key aspects of the season, sharing food is the best way to do it. But this time is more than just sharing food. It is a great way to create memories as well as reminisce. These intimate gatherings create a space of belongingness and acceptance, and a space to communicate. It’s a space to let your heartiest laugh roar and to stuff your face till your stomach is full; a space where you can be your true self.  

Eating together with family and friends   

Christmas dinner with your loved ones can either be utter chaos or the best time of your life. It’s a great way to build lost connections and find out everything you’ve missed. At most, if you have nothing to talk about, you can talk about the food!

Cooking a feast AND hosting an intimate gathering is no easy feat. Even if one dish doesn’t taste right, it can put a damper on the celebratory mood. Everything has to be perfect, and sometimes there’s no time to relax. This Christmas, take a breather. Let us do the cooking for you with our hearty Christmas dinner menu and year-end feasts. So, set the table and light up your tree; get ready for a sumptuous spread coming your way.

Understandably, not everyone can be surrounded by their families and friends. And that’s okay. Whether it’s a personal choice or circumstantial, you shouldn’t have to skip out on a big Christmas dinner. The best part is that you get to plan every single step. You don’t have to stick to the traditional dinner, your Christmas feast can be anything you like. How about an All-American BBQ Christmas feast or some delicious Truffle Chicken, or maybe something deliciously Greek? With FeastBox by Esseplore, we’re sure you’ll find a feast that’s right for you.

Though the year hasn’t been all that great, this season reminds us of what is truly important. So, whether you’re curled up on your couch or seated at a large table, we hope that you use this opportunity to stay connected with the people around you and enjoy a wonderful Christmas feast.  

Team Esseplore wishes you all a very Merry Christmas!
