Pandemic or not, we shall celebrate Christmas, won’t we? And, with the restrictions finally easing up, children being welcomed back into shopping malls and other family-friendly places, we appreciate it all the more how SM Supermalls has been putting so much effort into making everyone feel more excited about Christmas, not only with their pledge to give and to care Christmas countdown but also with how they decorate each SM Supermall with a spectacular theme to match.
SM Southmall’s Secret Christmas Garden
Let’s begin with every southie in the metro’s second home: SM Southmall. SM Southmall is known for its larger-than-life, picturesque Christmas centerpieces that are perfect backgrounds to our holiday photos. This year, however, SM Southmall unveiled their first-ever experiential Christmas centerpiece!
Abundant trees in varying sizes surround the whole display with a pathway leading to and unveiling the mystery of a secret garden. At the heart of the centerpiece is a 35-feet towering Christmas tree adorned with blooms and thousands of sparkling lights with giant elegant reindeer around it. Be transported to a Secret Christmas Garden at the mall’s Food Street Concourse, too.
There’s a lot more in store!
SM Southmall wants to bring back the joy of shoppers through fun and ‘southtacular’ activities you may safely enjoy (even with your kids)! Here are four ways you can fully enjoy Christmas with SM Southmall:
The South Pole Express. Another first for the mall is their Christmas drive-thru experience with immersive displays and interactive moments that families can enjoy in the safety and comfort of their cars. Let us all aboard The South Pole Express starting December 1st!
South Yuletide Markets. The Christmas bazaar will have a display of different knickknacks and gifts you can take home to the family. The South Yuletide Markets are there for the holidays so check them out at the Event Center and South Yard (near Door 4).
Santa’s Here! The pandemic cannot stop Santa Claus from visiting SM Southmall. He will be at the Door 4 driveway to bring the Christmas cheer to as many Southies as possible. Drive-thru with your kids on December 24–25 and say hi!
The Big South Sale is also something to look forward to on November 19–21. Get up to 70% off on festive finds!
