TAIPEI (The China Post) — Christmas light installations will light up Tamshui from Dec. 19 to Feb. 28, 2021, with nine installations on the theme of cherry blossoms and moon-shaped swings.

During the festival, you can take a stroll along the river and enjoy the Christmas activities in the surrounding area. After the Christmas holiday, activities will center on the Chinese New Year.
On Dec. 19, a Christmas Concert will take place in the chapel at Aletheia University. Tamshui Christmas event features the dazzling “cherry blossom tunnel” and the “moonlight swing” in Tamsui Old Street Square and Sanjiao Park.
What’s more? A huge Christmas tree will illuminate the night sky with its golden lights, creating fairy-tale like scenes.
