SM SOUTHMALL transforms into an Enchanted Christmas Woodland, unveiling the annual centerpiece on November 10, 2018. Watch the spirit of giving come to life as the premier mall of southern Metro Manila launches the holiday season with an interactive play production.
The Enchanted Christmas Woodland tells the tale of Chestnut, a newborn gnome, and how she finds her place in the enchanted woodland. She realizes that the true meaning of Christmas is brought to life by the spirit of giving. Chestnut shares this discovery with her friends from Almanza Elementary School.
SM SOUTHMALL carries this message throughout the season with Santa's Woodland Workshop, his woodland factory inhabited by little gnome assistants. In the Crafts Corner, they teach children to give back to their parents and loved ones with heartfelt messages in written cards. To enter, each child may purchase a Bear of Joy and get a free one donated in their name to a child in need on Christmas Day.
A full line up of festive performances are in store for families to experience togetherness during the holidays. International artist In Real Life puts on a show on November 11, while Ballet Philippines brings its popular rendition of Snow White to the south on December 21. The children of Yellow Room Philippines share their talents on November 17, 24 and December 1; students of Ecole de Ballet Manila perform on November 25, December 2 and December 15.
This time of year, SM SOUTHMALL not only creates opportunities for meaningful moments and lasting memories with the community, but also shares the true joy that comes from making others happy.
