What: Christ­mas Tree Light­ing Where: Dou­bleTree by Hil­ton

Citadel - - EVENTS -

Dou­bleTree by Hil­ton Pune hosted its an­nual tree-light­ing cer­e­mony last month, mark­ing the on­set of the Christ­mas fes­tiv­i­ties in the city. The spe­cial at­trac­tion this year was a uniquely de­signed, eco-friendly Christ­mas tree that had only a few nat­u­ral el­e­ments, which were put to­gether by the team. Shar­ing his thoughts be­hind the ideation of the tree, Gen­eral Man­ager, Aditya Shamsher Malla said, “To­gether, the team at the ho­tel came up with this ini­tia­tive as a demon­stra­tion of our deep-rooted com­mit­ment to the en­vi­ron­ment. The end prod­uct was a beau­ti­fully de­signed tree, put to­gether with just a few nat­u­ral el­e­ments like bam­boo, jute and string. It’s a won­der­ful work of cre­ativ­ity by the team and has be­come a spe­cial at­trac­tion at the ho­tel.” Adding to the theme of so­cial aware­ness, the ho­tel, as­so­ci­ated with a lo­cal NGO, in­vited a group of un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren to be a part of the tree-light­ing cer­e­mony. The chil­dren were seen en­joy­ing the evening and in­ter­act­ing with the ho­tel staff. A short set of Christ­mas car­ols was also per­formed by the group, adding to the fes­tive cheer. This was fol­lowed by the light­ing of the won­der­ful tree and a spe­cial ap­pear­ance from Santa Claus, who de­lighted all with a bag of spe­cial treats. The evening came to a close with a warm send off to all the in­vi­tees and a vote of thanks from Gen­eral Man­ager, Aditya Shamsher Malla.
