Christmas in Malaysia



I’m enjoying your Tales of International Christmas very much, so please do join in by describing your strange (to you) festive scenes in the comments. Here’s an illustrated despatch from Edd:

I am currently in Malaysia and have just been listening to last week’s podcast in which someone asked if in Australia they associate the same snowy imagery with Christmas as in Britain.

I will be able to confirm that in a few days, but for the moment I can say with certainty that they do here and it’s 30 degrees and so humid I can barely breathe. They also plaster every available square inch with Christmas trees, Santa Claus and candy canes.

I have attached pictures of a shopping mall in Kuala Lumpur which I hope you will agree is about the gaudiest thing you’ve ever seen. They also loop Chris Rea over the sound system for good measure.
