I said I wanted to go around hunting for Christmas decorations around Hong Kong, and I still do, but I realized that I just haven’t had time! I’m always too exhausted to go out after work. Time is limited on weekends. I wish I could go out more, but no matter how you cut it, there are only 24 hours in a day.
Nevertheless, there is one place pretty close to home that I’ve been able to walk past every now and then. Causeway Bay! I didn’t plan my trips, but usually I just find myself in the area on my way home or something, and I’d snap a picture. After a few convenient stops in this attractive area, I’ve finally collected enough pictures to share!
This would be the plaza right outside Times Square – they always have some sort of thing going on here. I think their Christmas decorations are a bit odd; they probably have some sort of theme or story behind it, and it most likely has something to do with the sponsor of all these ornaments, but I didn’t see it. Whatever – they still attracted quite a lot of people to take pictures!
Inside Times Square, there’s these decorations – still the same cartoon animals. I really like the house in the background!
Looking into the display of one of the stores, you see this – something I’d expect to see on the streets of downtown Vancouver. There’s something not quite right though… the fact that it’s not on the street, but instead, inside a mall. The visuals are telling me its Christmas, but the feeling isn’t there.
Once you head over past the Sogo part of Causeway Bay and towards Victoria Park, there’s more ground-level stores. The decorations there are also a lot nicer! Among those is this tree of Santa Claus toys, “knitted with love”.
These Santas covering the fences are also adorable! They’ve got to be my favourite so far!
Today is already the 11th of December. Christmas is in a mere two weeks! Time to try a bit harder with the Christmas hunting!
