SM Bu­la­can Malls start count­down to Christ­mas

Sun.Star Pampanga - - LIFESTYLE! -

Count­down to Christ­mas is un­der­way as SM Malls in Mar­i­lao, San Jose Del Monte and Bali­wag cel­e­brate the most won­der­ful time of the year with unique cen­ter­pieces, spe­cial treats and pro­mos.

SM Bu­la­can Malls are all decked out in Christ­mas trim­mings in­spired by the col­or­ful car­ni­val and unique cen­ter­pieces for self­ies, groupies to post on so­cial me­dia.

At SM City San Jose Del Monte, a mag­nif­i­cent 30-foot tall Christ­mas tree adorned the Santa Claus vil­lage at the mall’s event cen­ter. The glow­ing ensem­ble was a feast for the eyes as it was dec­o­rated with gold gar­lands, iri­des­cent red and gold balls as well as warm fairy lights. Shop­pers in­stantly felt the magic of Santa’s home as they rode the life size St. Ni­cholas sleigh. Tra­di­tional Christ­mas mar­ket stalls sur­round the Santa’s Vil­lage where shop­pers can buy gifts for their loved ones.

Yule­tide drama un­furled at SM City Bali­wag as it un­veiled its 24-foot tall lit­tle drum­mer boy Christ­mas tree. Shop­pers were de­lighted as they took fam­ily and group pho­tos around the uniquely crafted gi­gan­tic drums, gi­ant gift box and nu­mer­ous life-size drum­mer boy fig­ures. SM City Bali­wag’s cen­ter­piece re­minds shop­pers of the rea­son for the sea­son. It re­minded Christ as the rea­son for cel­e­bra­tion through the story of the lit­tle drum­mer boy. As re­called, the lit­tle drum­mer boy was sum­moned by the Magi to the Na­tiv­ity of Je­sus. The lit­tle drum­mer boy played his drums as a gift for the in­fant Je­sus.

Ec­static crowds packed the launched of SM City Mar­i­lao’s iconic Christ­mas cen­ter­piece. This year’s cen­ter­piece was Ja­panese in­spired with mod­ern recre­ation of the coun­try’s tra­di­tional folk-art called Kokeshi dolls. These dolls are cen­turies-old craft that brings love, hap­pi­ness, and har­mony to fam­i­lies and to loved ones. The hand­crafted life-size Kokeshi dolls adorned the 20 feet Christ­mas tree boxes. As tra­di­tion dic­tates, the in­tri­cately de­signed 5ft dolls served as sea­sonal cen­ter­piece in the mall’s busiest atrium. The dolly Christ­mas cen­ter­piece was also more pic­turesque than usual as host of stun­ning play of lights brighten it, with a sprin­kle of snow.

“SM’s Christ­mas cen­ter­pieces are what Bu­lakeños look for­ward to as the start of their hol­i­day roll-out” said SM City Mar­i­lao Mall Man­ager Ber­nadette Ve­lasco. She also added that SM’s goal is to come up with unique and in­ter­ac­tive Christ­mas cen­ter­pieces to bring last­ing and won­der­ful mem­o­ries to shop­pers.

Ig­nit­ing the hol­i­day mood on the com­ing days, SM will stir up fes­tive hap­pen­ings with daz­zling en­ter­tain­ment, fire­works dis­play, chorales and orches­tra per­for­mances, and spe­cial Christ­mas ac­tiv­i­ties that will surely thrill shop­pers; young and old. Spe­cial pro­mos and treats await shop­pers for the Christ­mas count­down.
