A Mystical Christmas filled with elves and fairies was unveiled at SM City Iloilo last November 12, 2011. This grand Christmas celebration was launched simultaneously with all SM Supermalls nationwide.

The program started with a dramatic unveiling of the centerpiece while Iloilo’s top chorale groups. Standing at the lower and upper ground floors with their hand-held lit stars was the Chorale singing “Carol of the Bells”. As the Christmas Centerpiece was unveiled, SM Little Stars winners, Precious Pearl Banaban, Kian Benz Bastian and Mico Hendrix Chua joined SM Group Marketing Manager, Kristine Joyce Yap, 1 Meal Board of Director, Ms. Chona Layson-Bondoc, and SM City Iloilo Mall Manager Girlie Liboon during the lighting of the Christmas Centerpiece.

University of St. La Salle Stingers Aerialists, Pilipinas Got Talent Finalists, who acted as fairies during the program awed everyone with a breathtaking number as they showcased their aerial performance with such ease and expertise. Everyone was literally up in their seats as the performers soared high in the air.

After the unveiling program, Santa Claus with his faithful elves distributed gifts to elementary kids from St. Abeto Elementary School, a beneficiary of the 1 Meal program. 1 Meal program is a non-profit organization which aims to improve facilities in less privileged public schools by actively involving the private sector.

The Christmas Centerpiece at  SM City Iloilo features three giant Christmas trees as high as 20 feet, featuring playful elves, giant red polka dotted mushrooms and other unique Christmas ornaments.
