CHRISTMAS trees are towering symbols of love, peace and joy. With this in mind, establishments in Cebu have readied their own Christmas trees in celebration of the season. Take a look at some of the notable Christmas trees in Metro Cebu:

SM City Cebu

Experience the world of Santa Claus at SM City Cebu. The mall’s gigantic 33-foot Christmas tree is embellished with the iconic glittery Christmas balls in bright tones of red, green and gold. Surrounding the tree are figures of reindeers and Santa together with his elves. The lighting of the Christmas tree was indeed memorable with the presence of the children under the care of Kythe Foundation Inc. Kids enjoyed the gift treats of the SM City Cebu management. Delighting the audience during the lighting ceremony were dancers in Santa’s elves costumes. (MRC)
