To celebrate the season, several malls and districts have organised Christmas displays that feature everything from gigantic trees and life-size sleighs with reindeer, to snow shows and meet-and-greet sessions with Santa Claus. Here’s our list of places where you can make winter memories and get picture-perfect clicks of them.
