Reflect cultural diversity with Deepavali decorations

I am a regular visitor to Marina Bay Sands.

A nice, huge Christmas tree with accompanying beautiful Christmas bunting has been put up there to liven up the atmosphere for the upcoming festivities.

Although Marina Bay Sands is a commerce-driven entity, it would have been a nice gesture to put up some decorations for Deepavali as well, especially since the festival is less than a week away.

It would also be a nice gesture if other commercial entities in Singapore could put up some form of Deepavali decorations and have activities, if possible, to reinforce the strong bonds we have in multiracial Singapore.
