Things got a little bit brighter as SM City Puerto Princesa lit up this year’s Christmas display, cultivating hope and unity in celebration of the holiday season with family and friends amid the uncertainties.
#SamaSamaTayoSaPaskoAtSM opened the Christmas season on November 8, 2020 at the lower ground level of SM City Puerto Princesa to the new normal of celebrations where minimal health standards and safety protocols are in place.
“Not even the pandemic can take away the beloved tradition of Filipino families to celebrate this joyous season at SM. Let the wonderful, magical and truly merry Christmas at SM drive away the blues! Sama sama tayo sa Pasko sa SM!” says Maidja Saliente, mall manager of SM City Puerto Princesa.
The celebration highlights the lighting of the giant Christmas tree and other holiday displays featuring Christmas icons like reindeers, snowman, toy soldier, and many more.
On November 6, 2020, SM malls across the country shared virtual Christmas launchings with the aim to inspire joy, hope and love this season.
