Christmas Shows at the Malls 2013

(Daddy compiles)

And so, Christmas is here again and along with it comes the bumper crop of Christmas shows and cartoon meet & greets at the shopping malls all around Singapore.

I first started compiling the list of Christmas Shows back in 2008, all thanks to a certain 3-year-old Ash who was into Barney and what-nots. And I have been at it every single year since then, with this year's list marking the 6th year of my compilation. Hope you have found them to be useful all these years! :)

I'll add to the list as soon as other shows are made known. So do bookmark this post for future updates!
