Holidays and gift giving occasions in Singapore

They know how to party over in Singapore – after all, they celebrate New Year twice! As much as we’re big fans of a party, public holidays are the bane of smooth movement of goods – especially when you remember that parcels aren’t collected or delivered on public holidays. To make sure you’re not surprised by a delay, we’ve put together a list of Singapore national holidays – if you’re sending around the dates below, keep in mind that there might be a day or two delay in it being collected or delivered.
