Pumpkin lanterns and scary costumes are now kept once again on the cabinets and the start of the merry season can be felt around us. Filipino families start to set-up their Christmas trees and also do their early Christmas shopping at their favorite stores, like SM Supermalls. Well, one can still feel the holiday spirit at their favorite SM Malls as they launched their SM Chritmas ChriSMs last November 6, 2010 at the Event Center of SM Megamall.

*Ceiling of SM Megamall with snow flakes added Xmas spirit
The Event center of SM Megamall was full of people last November 6, 2010 as they await a grand celebration to happen that night. This date is really special because SM Supermalls declared the start of Christmas as the grandest and most glittering holiday celebration kicks off simultaneously in all SM Supermalls nationwide. This gives families and friends a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the most festive time of the year together. 

DLSU Chorale and Orchestra singing Xmas carols
On my way to the event center, I can already feel the holiday season very near as I hear songs of good cheer and all-time favorite Christmas jingles and melodies. Shoppers from all walks of life are being pulled by the fantastic combination of outstanding voices and musical instruments from DLSU Orchestra. The invited children of the event are amazed by the fantastic voices from these young students. A lot of young and young at hearts can relate to the songs rendered by these students. I thought it was already the start of the event but actually this is just a primer of the event to happen.

Ms. Cory Quirino with the kids
Few minutes before the event, celebrities like Ms. Cory Quirino, Alodia Gosienfiao, and Ashley arrived to witness the event. Officers of SM Supermalls like Mr. Henry Sy Jr. are also present for the event. It was not long and the event was started and the host was introduced, who is none other than Ms. Nikki Gil. This event is actually a simultaneous event across all the 40 SM Supermalls nationwide. I am actually amazed how SM Supermalls grew all these years. I can still remember when our family need to travel to Makati just to visit a SM store but now we have one nearby, SM City Bicutan. :)

Ms. Nikki Gil as she interviewed the Prince of Pop, Mr. Eric Santos
In order to make the event more special, a surprise guest was introduced by Nikki. It is no other than the Prince of Pop, Mr. Eric Santos. Eric serenaded his fans with his own version of the official Christmas anthem of SM, "SM Christmas ChriSMs BOP". I'm lucky to capture his live performance of this jingle of SM Supermalls, which I believe you have heard already as you visit any of the 40 malls nationwide. Here's his video rendition of the SM ChriSMs BOP and a Christmas song from his album:

The song also have an official video with the great animation to visualize the lyrics. If you want to join in to sing to the jingle. You may see the lyrics posted below:

Aside from the launch of the SM Christmas ChriSMs BOP, there are still lot of things that happened. During the event, one would notice that a great white cloth is covering the back drop of the SM Event Center as if something is about to come. Well, we were never disappointed as a great castle was unveiled during the event. As the castle was unveiled, human magical toys came into life. Christmas season will never be complete without the emblem of gift giving for kids, which is Santa Claus. He made a day-off and travel all the way to SM Megamall to give cheer to the children who were there to witness the event. Here is the exclusive coverage of the magical unveiling of the SM castle during the event:
After the unveiling of the castle, President of SM Supermalls together with celebrities are asked to join Nikki on stage. They are called as they are about to start the magical lighting of the millions of Christmas lights across all SM malls. SM shoppers during the event feast their eyes on over a million lights lit during the special  light up ceremony to usher in the start of the merriest, brightest time of the year. See the video below the exclusive footage of the lighting ceremony:

*Christmas toys comes to life last Saturday

Christmas is the time of gift giving and Santa amidst his old-age could not ever forget that. That's why during the event, kids lined up as Santa handed over some gifts courtesy of SM Supermalls. They were ushered by the gorgeous and handsome kuya and ate dressed as toys. The event center was like a winter wonderland that night as confetti and snow like bubbles are dropping in the air.

Famous Santa's red chair in The Atrium of SM Megamall
Earlier during the event, the red chair centerpiece of Santa was also unveiled to the public at The Atrium of SM Megamall. Young and old alike was awed with the great Santa's red chair. If you are wondering if you can only see it in SM Megamall, well worry no more as each SM mall will have its own special and unique centerpieces apart from Santa. One can feast their eyes on gloriuos sights like candy houses, carolers, ballerinas, snowmen and a whole lot more. SM Supermalls partners with Samsung in making this  a more joyful Christmas.
