Looking back at fun-filled Christmas Memories
Christmas traditions and celebrations take on various forms in different regions around the world. For example, in Philippines, we spot unique Christmas decorations such as the “parol” or traditions such as the “Noche Buena”. In Europe, Christmas is marked by the sight of advent windows and celebrations with hot Glühwein and Christmas markets. The Japanese would feast on fried chicken and cakes with their loved ones on this special day.
Though marked with different cultures and practices, Christmas is a season of hope, joy, giving and an opportunity to spend quality time with your loved ones. In Singapore, Christmas is often associated with Christmas background music in the shopping malls, the long queue at the gift wrap booths and most memorably – the Christmas on A Great Street (COAGS) light up on Orchard Road.

About Hitachi and Christmas on
A Great Street (COAGS)
Each year, the streets of Orchard Road will be illuminated with dazzling arches of lights and merry decorations during the festive period. For the 32nd year running, Hitachi will continue to bring year-end festivities to life on the famed shopping street. Dedicated to “Powering Good” and delivering the goodness that everyone deserves, the sponsorship is a natural extension of our mission to contribute back to the society.
Empowering an Inclusive Society
Apart from the COAGS sponsorship, Hitachi and its Group of Companies have participated in various CSR activities to empower the vulnerable and underprivileged groups in Singapore.
