SM MOA Brightens the Holidays with the Lighting of its Grand Christmas Tree

It's less than two months before Christmas and I'm sure everybody's excited for the happiest time of the year :) After all, there's nothing like Christmas in the Philippines especially when the countdown gets nearer to the big day. Although the weather still hasn't quite got the cool feel we expect during the Ber months, the upcoming Yuletide season is very much evident in the Christmas carols we hear and the lights and decorations that are popping up everywhere. 

Experience a magical Christmas at the SM Mall of Asia now that the festivities have officially started with the lighting of the Grand Christmas Tree last Sunday afternoon in the Main Mall Atrium

SM MOA's VIPs together with special guests that included mother and daughter Kuh Ledesma and Isabella, and the UP Singing Ambassadors who entertained the audience with lovely songs. 

The Philippine All Stars also performed an energetic dance number for everyone's enjoyment.

The majestic 50-foot tree was decked in twinkling lights and amazing toys. Joining the fun were Santa Claus and Garfield who gamely posed for pictures with kids and adults alike.   

Join the fun and get a chance to meet and greet different well-loved toys and cartoon characters every weekend until the New Year for a Christmas Toy Wonderworld that will delight the kids and kids-at-heart.

Here are some of the upcoming activities to watch out for:

Nov 17 - party with the Monster High Crew
Nov 24 and 25 - cuddle up to the Sylvanian Families
Dec 1 and 2 - experience merry morphing with The Power Rangers
Dec 8 and 9 - meet the orange cat Garfield and his doggie sidekick Odie
Dec 13 to 19 - get awesome gift ideas at the Hasbro Grand Toy Fair
Dec 15 and 16 - get to know the legendary toys Mr. Potato Head and Play Doh Tubby
Dec 21, 22, 29, 30 and Jan 5 and 6 - have photos taken with the dainty Lalaloopsy dolls

If you want to meet Santa Claus and have him tell you if you've been naughty or nice, share your Christmas wishes to this big huggable man who will be waiting under the tree from 2PM to 5PM every weekend until Christmas day!

Be amazed with larger-than-life toys covered in bright twinkling lights during SM MOA's 5th Grand Festival of Lights Parade happening every Saturday at 5:30PM from Dec 1 to 22 and on Christmas day itself.

To make Christmas even more meaningful, SM MOA encourages its mall-goers to celebrate the season of giving by sharing their blessings through the SM Cares' Bears of Joy project where you can take home a cute and cuddly teddy bear for P100 and the proceeds will be donated to various orphanages and charitable institutions supported by this project.

Now that's a full schedule of celebrations ahead! So, enjoy a fun and abundant holiday season with your family and friends. Make sure you visit the Christmas Toy Wonderworld only at the SM Mall of Asia!
