Perfect Christmas at SM City Santa Rosa


 It’s really beginning to look a lot like Christmas what with people beginning to decorate their homes with bright lights, Christmas wreaths, tinsels and Christmas trees. Shopping malls are starting to display colorful Christmas trinkets and jolly old Santa Claus statuettes in various states of jolliness can now be bought at very affordable prices. 

 Budget conscious shoppers are already doing their preliminary shopping and little boys and girls are happily daydreaming of all the wonderful gifts they will be receiving on Christmas day. Gifts, happiness, love and hope these are the ingredients for a perfect Christmas.

   SM City Santa Rosa kick-started the advent of the holiday season by a ceremonial launch of their Christmas centerpiece highlighting the theme “A Perfect Christmas” last November 10.

   The North Pole inspired centerpiece featured gigantic polar bears, adorable penguins, giant snowflakes and glittery igloos. Shoppers can now create unforgettable moments by taking souvenir photos with their friends and loved ones at SM Santa Rosa’s newest attraction.

   Super Voice, a manila based group of performers, added merriment to the occasion via a musical play which painted a picture, through songs and dances, of what a perfect Christmas should be. Aside from the launch of the Christmas centerpiece, SM likewise launched their official Merry ChriSMs jingle as performed this year by the Von Trapp Children of the famous Von Trapp Family from the hit musical The Sound of Music.

  Another highlight of the event was when SM Administration employees handed out gifts to orphaned children from Bahay Parola, Santa Rosa city’s local orphanage, as well as disadvantaged children under the care of the local CSWD.

  “We wanted to do something new this Christmas season, we wanted to make a difference even in a small way that’s why we thought of sharing whatever blessings we had to orphaned and less fortunate children” said Pamela Baun, SM City Santa Rosa’s Public Relations Officer.    

  Santa Rosa City Vice Mayor Arnel Gomez graced the event together with Brgy. Tagapo Chairperson Marietta Bartolazo as well as provincial and  local officials.

  All 48 SM malls launched their holiday centerpieces simultaneously in jam packed events, each emphasizing the various symbols of Christmas. In South Luzon, SM Muntinlupa’s Christmas Centerpiece showcased Santa’s Christmas Castle while SM Calamba and SM San Pablo highlighted Christmas Candy Land and Christmas Village respectively.

The Perfect Christmas Centerpiece will be on display at SM City Santa Rosa grounds until the 1st week of January!
