A love story for the ages highlighted SM City Consolacion’s tree lighting ceremony last Sunday, November 6, 2016, to mark the start of the festive Christmas season in Cebu.

Dancers recreated the soldier and ballerina’s happy ending in a Castle of Magic put up as backdrop to the huge Christmas tree that now dominates the Event Center of SM City Consolacion.

Toy soldiers and graceful ballerinas wowed the crowd with their performance shortly before the Christmas tree lit up with a myriad of colors.

Castle of Magic

“Christmas is a season filled with colors, lights, and a whole lot of happiness. This year, we are adding a whimsical touch to the most awaited time of the year through our Castle of Magic,” said SM City Consolacion assistant mall manager Estrella I. Wamilda.

Scenic lights placed around the Event Center and elevator add to the festive spirit of the season.

To spread the Christmas joy and cheer as widely as possible, SM Consolacion also launched the Bears of Joy.

Bears of Joy

Shoppers who buy a Bears of Joy set for P200 get to keep one bear and donate the other to SM Consolacion’s children beneficiaries from the Nangka Daycare Center.

“The Christmas celebration wouldn’t be complete without sharing the love this holiday. Let us continue to support SM Bears of Joy to make more children happy this Christmas,” explained Wamilda.

The Bears of Joy booth is located at the Atrium, located at the ground level of SM City Consolacion.
