Gardens by the Bay will be having a festive floral display, Poinsettia Wishes, at the Flower Dome.

With the theme of "A Nordic Christmas Adventure", the winter land display is inspired by the seafaring voyagers from the eighth to 11th centuries.

Visitors will get to see symbols and representations of the Viking age, including the longship and the set-up of a traditional feast.

There will also be Nisses, mythological creatures from Nordic folklore that look like a hybrid between a garden gnome and Santa Claus.

A part of the display will feature a postcard wall filled with heartfelt messages to Santa.

These wishes are written by beneficiaries from the Children's Cancer Foundation (CCF) and will be delivered to Santa's post offices in Rovaniemi, Finland and Drøbak, Norway.
