Christmas 2015 Starts in Joyful Note at SM Mall of Asia’s “Santa’s Very Merry Wonderland”

Everyone's favorite season is on a roll and the kids and I welcomed it with a bang last November 7 at the Mall of Asia Christmas Launch!   It was truly a festive, joyful Christmas kick-off as Mall of Asia patrons were serenaded by the acapella-epic performance of TheFilharmonic.

TheFilharmonic, a group of 6 Fil-Am boys gained international fame with their unique singing talent. They sing without instruments and yet they sound like they have the full ensemble! Super cool!

Did you watch the video? What did I tell you? Awesomeness!!!!  It was their first time to perform in Manila and it was all for free courtesy of SM Mall of Asia!

Could it have been greater than that?

Yes! SM Mall of Asia's “Santa’s Very Merry Wonderland” had more wonderful surprises!

Kids and kids at heart were giddy with joy as they watched the Grand Festival of Lights Parade headed by Santa and their favorite Sanrio characters!SM Mall of Asia Festival of Lights

So festive! Don't worry, you can still catch The Grand Festival of Lights on parade every Saturday until Christmas day. The parade, which will start at 5:30 p.m., will begin from the North Arcade and end at the SM MOA By the Bay with a big bang via a grand fireworks display.

After The Grand Festival of Lights, SM Mall of Asia lit up their 50ft Christmas tree amidst a flurry of glittering confetti which delighted everyone!

And then Santa's little elves came out of the giant box bearing gifts for almost everyone in the audience!

The happiness of the kids from SM's chosen charity cannot be described kids.


And TheFilharmonics fans were hyperventilating in joy the whole time!

The evening was capped with the breath taking Pyromusical display set against the skyline of Manila Bay.

It was indeed a magical and joyful night for my kids and I and for everyone around. Not too late though, remember, you and the whole family can still catch The Grand Festival of Lights and Pyromusical Show till Christmas!

Have fun!
