Well, we are well into November and Christmas is right around the corner!
This past weekend we got two reminders that Christmas is coming:
- SM City Davao – Christmas Kickoff was held on Friday evening, November 6.
- SM City General Santos – Christmas Kickoff was held on Saturday evening, November 7.
For today, let me tell you about the event at SM City Davao. We will talk about SM City GenSan in another blog post!
Friday November 6
This event was held in the Annex building at SM Ecoland and started at 5pm. They had a stage show with lots of dancing and singing. Hello Kitty was the featured guest at the beginning of the show, and others were also part of the show, people like Santa’s Elves, various singers and other characters (mascots). Hello Kitty lit the Official SM Christmas tree, and things really got started then!
After the lighting of the tree it was time for Santa Claus! Yes, that is right, I was there at SM for their Christmas launch, and it was a lot of fun.
A group of maybe 100 or more children were hosted by SM. These kids were from a local orphanage. I was able to meet and talk to every one of them, and gave out gifts to each child too! What a special time that was, and it was enjoyed by Santa and the Kids as well!
After spending time with the kids, it was time for Santa to get out into the crowd and meet and greet all of the people – other kids and the adults as well! Later, I spent time with much of the SM City staff, the people who hosted me and took good care of me during the entire party!
I really had a great time at SM City Davao and I will be there at least one more day this Christmas season! I look forward to seeing you there too!
