Christ­mas Grand Launch

The Freeman - - OPINION -

SM City Cebu, SM Sea­side City Cebu, and SM City Con­so­la­cion are up for some­thing ex­cit­ing this Christ­mas sea­son.

SM City Cebu lighted its gi­ant 30-foot Christ­mas Tree on Novem­ber 8, at 6 p.m. at the North­wing Atrium. Along­side, Grand Christ­mas Pa­rade and Hol­i­day fire­works gave high­light to the cel­e­bra­tion.

Added at­trac­tions are nine gi­gan­tic houses with dif­fer­ent heights, in­spired by the Christ­mas Vil­lage be­side the Christ­mas Tree. The houses are adorned with ‘snow’ and col­or­ful lights where shop­pers may take pic­tures with their fam­i­lies and friends. Mall hall­ways now echo joy­ful sounds of pop Christ­mas car­ols and brass sym­phonies, cre­at­ing the per­fect at­mos­phere for shop­pers to get hol­i­day gift and finds for loved ones.

Over at SM Sea­side City Cebu, it’s hol­i­day un­der the sea, with photo-wor­thy in­stal­la­tions set up and a cen­ter­piece re­vealed yes­ter­day, Novem­ber 10, at

4 p.m. at the Moun­tain Wing Atrium. Per­for­mances by Bal­let Cen­ter Cebu, in­spired by “The Nutcracker,” are set for Novem­ber 14, 25, 28 and De­cem­ber 1, from 2 to 4 p.m.

For its part, SM City Con­so­la­cion lights up its Christ­mas Tree tonite, Novem­ber 11, at 6 p.m. at the Event Cen­tre with a hol­i­day cir­cus theme. Kids will def­i­nitely have fun rid­ing and tak­ing pic­tures with the carousel dec­o­rated with play­ful colors go­ing round in cir­cles, hear­ing yule­tide cheers to fuel the Christ­mas spirit.

From shop­ping for gifts to en­joy­ing hol­i­day feasts to gro­cery shop­ping for noche buena, and, now, can’t-miss hol­i­day at­trac­tions, SM Su­permalls give fam­i­lies so many rea­sons to en­joy the sea­son and make mean­ing­ful mem­o­ries to­gether.

Shop­pers can also share the love and joy of giv­ing with the SM Bears of Joy, an an­nual fund drive that seeks to make kids happy this Christ­mas. For P200, a cus­tomer gets one SM Bear, while an­other one will be do­nated to cho­sen char­i­ties of the SM mall for poor chil­dren. The more bears one buys, the more needy chil­dren will ben­e­fit.

To know more about the many fun and ex­cit­ing things in store for ev­ery­one this hol­i­day sea­son, one may visit SM City Cebu (Of­fi­cial), SM Sea­side City Cebu (Of­fi­cial), and SM City Con­so­la­cion (Of­fi­cial) on Face­book.
