Christmas has been going through some changes of late.
In malls and department stores around Taiwan, children can get a snapshot sitting on the lap of Santa Claus. But club Micasa is modifying this Christmas tradition tomorrow night by inviting its customers to have their photo taken with one of Taiwan’s most titillating models, Betty Lin (林佩璇).
“December is my favorite month and even though it is not an Asian tradition, I still like to get crazy on Christmas,” said Lin.
It rarely snows here, but inside Micasa, a snow machine will be make customers feel like they are in a winter wonderland. Lin, a 25-year-old model has been traveling the world this year and even got to see her first snowfall up close.
“When I saw snow in Europe, I felt like I was going to cry,” Lin said. “As a little girl, my father would tell me the story of Christmas, but it wasn’t until then [seeing snow] that I realized why so many people love celebrating the holiday.”
