I was talking with my sisters earlier about the Ayala Malls Christmas event, while munching on a box of Custaroons. We realized that we're lucky we're not super "emo" during this love-hate season. We thought that maybe it's because we're used to having each other during this time of the year? No matter what, we have family.
Anyway, I am glad that the Ayala Malls is here to remind us of beloved family traditions and other important things that make Christmas magical and meaningful - more than the lights, fancy decors, and rush shopping.
The launch of Ayala Malls Christmas 2015 was held earlier at the Fairmont Hotel's Ballroom, with Ginger Conejero as host.
From far North in Fairview Terraces down to the Queen City of the South at Ayala Center Cebu, Ayala Malls will let you feel the Yuletide cheer by bringing you “The Sound of Christmas”, a concert series featuring top singers together with the well-renowned Manila Symphony Orchestra,
Mas feel ko talaga ang Pasko because of the songs. They played Christmas melodies and Coldplay earlier!
They also showcased the beautiful Artwork Tunnel which will be seen in Greenbelt:
Meanwhile, with the charm of Piolo Pascual and The Voice of the Philippines’ Daryl Ong, TriNoma will surely love holiday melodies in an exciting way on November 5.
The busy streets of Makati will transform into Christmas-themed venues with a musical spectacle from Sam Milby and rock princess Yeng Constantino at Glorietta on November 7 & Erik Santos and Nikki Gil at Greenbelt on November 11.
This month-long act will continue to spread happiness until December with featured artists from Kyla, KZ Tandingan, Richard Poon, Angeline Quinto, Jay R and Marion Aunor at Fairview Terraces on November 14, Ayala Center Cebu on November 22, Market! Market! on December 6 and Alabang Town Center on December 13.
As every celebration won’t be complete without people grooving to the beat, Ayala Malls partners again with Steps Dance Project to bring back Frankly Speaking in the provinces-Harbor Point, Subic Bay Freeport Zone (November 13), MarQuee Mall Angeles, Pampanga (November 14), Centrio Mall, Cagayan de Oro (November 20), and Abreeza Mall, Davao (November 22).
Frankly Speaking is a jazz musical inspired from the famous hits of the legendary music icon, the late Frank Sinatra. This musical concert will also feature the talented dancer, musician and entertainer, Omar Edwards from New York.
Another remarkable offering from Ayala Malls is a special gift for the kids. The spotlight is on British animated series Peppa Pig, as she celebrates her first Christmas in Ayala Malls, together with her family—little brother George and Mummy and Daddy Pig, who will be giving a Christmas presentation with sing-a-long, dancing, and snorts of laughter for the most wonderful time of the year.
Perfect for loving parents with children who are avid fans of this bubbly cartoon show, this will take place at Glorietta(November 13-15), TriNoma(November 21-22), Ayala Center Cebu(November 27-29), Alabang Town Center(December 4-6), Market! Market!(December 11-13), and Ayala Malls Solenad(December 18-20).

Besides the much-awaited festivities, Glorietta remains passionate in the arts with its Calligraphy Fair that will be an afternoon pen meet highlighting top artists in the country on November 7 and the Artwork T-shirt Printing for customized shirts for the holidays on December 12. As Christmas is the season to give back, a CSR effort from the mall entitled “100 Christmas Wishes” will also be held to encourage shoppers in sponsoring wishes of 100 less fortunate children from November to December.
While Greenbelt will kick off its Christmas season with a lighting and toasting ceremony on November 11, Alabang Town Center introduces the holiday spirit with back-to-back toy fairs and sale events before its weekly Community Christmas Cantata on the whole month of December with special participation from Lyceum Orchestra, Lighthouse Bible Church, San Beda College, SAT Music, Christ Commission Fellowship, and many more.
Foodies will enjoy sumptuous delights from Weekend Market by The Clean Plate at UP Town Center on December 11 to 13, Greenbelt Christmas Market on all weekends of December, and Awesome Food fair co-presented by lifestyle blog Our Awesome Planet on December 20 to 22. Moreover, your weekends will become extra special in Ayala Malls nationwide with a sequence of meet-and-greet events with Santa Claus, fireworks displays, chorales, booths for holiday treats, and the traditional Simbang Gabi.
To experience the Ayala Christmas in advance, we had the chance to "shop" and enjoy products available in different Ayala Malls!
Thank you! And yes, that's the Custaroons my sisters and I enjoyed earlier. :)
