Singapore - Christmas is Shocking!

In addition to my previous post on Christmas in Singapore, I noticed a new trend this year. The outdoor decorations and many displays in stores now sport signs saying "DANGER - HIGH VOLTAGE. Pretty interesting for a place where it rains just about every day.

This redefines the concept of a "warm and fuzzy feeling" when looking at displays. Either we have hit a new low in public safety, or the theft rate is significant enough that the display owners are trying a fairly pathetic way of trying to keep people off their stuff.

And yes, for those not familiar with the total crassness of Christmas in Singapore, the picture is of an actual Christmas "decoration" on Orchard Road. I could understand the confusion if you thought it was an advertisment or warning sign...
