Christmas Begins at the Grandest Christmas Tree Lighting at SM Mall of Asia

Christmas is finally here! It's truly the happiest time of the year with lots of love, gift-giving and memorable moments with the family. The excitement grows as the Christmas countdown gets nearer and nearer to the big day. We can feel it in the air, hear it in the Christmas carols, and see it in the lights and decorations popping up everywhere.

Retail giant SM Mall of Asia kicks-off the holiday festivities with the traditional lighting of the Grand Christmas Tree at the Main Mall Atrium. For the grandest and most magical Christmas experience in the metro, SM Mall of Asia has a lot in store for its shoppers and it began on November 11, 5pm as they lit up their Grand Christmas Tree. SM MOA VIPs together with special guests launched the majestic 50-foot tree decked in twinkling lights and amazing toys. Santa Claus also joined in the fun when he brought the toys to life with a little magic for everyone to see!

Leading the ceremonies were SM Prime Holdings President Hans Sy (far right) together with (L-R) Eden Calixto, wife of Pasay City Mayor Tony Calixto,Marlon Pesebre, Pasay City Vice Mayor and Santa Claus.
The whole mall felt the warmth of Christmas as they were serenaded by the UP Singing Ambassadors and OPM legend KuhLedesma together with her equally talented daughter Isabella.
