Christmas countdown at Araneta City in Cubao, Quezon City is now officially on with the much-awaited giant Christmas tree lighting finally made last Saturday, 14 November 2020.
Amid the pandemic, however, the lighting ceremony of the iconic Giant Christmas Tree at the City of Firsts was never witnessed personally by hundreds of shoppers as such, it was virtually made this time around, online.
The much-anticipated Christmas tradition at AC is now on its 39th year, carrying a theme “Comfort and Joys at the City of Firsts.”
“We understand how the pandemic has affected everything, including the way we’ll welcome and celebrate Christmas. We want to offer a holiday comfort to the public in the safety of either our stores or their homes. And through this virtual Christmas tree lighting, we are looking forward to giving joy and hope this season,” according to Marjorie Go, AVP for Marketing of Araneta City. (IAm)
