CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING – KAPWA KO, MAHAL KO

 

Christmas – the season that’s most celebrated in the world; that time when families come together to celebrate the birth of the child Jesus. A celebration that’s done in various ways and traditions all over the world, one of them being the putting up of the Christmas Tree.

There are several beliefs on the history of the tree but one popular one is that it is identified with the tree of paradise of medieval mystery plays that were given every 24th of December, the commemoration and name day of Adam and Eve in various countries. In such plays, a tree decorated with apples – to represent the forbidden fruit- and wafers – to represent the Eucharist and redemption – was used as a setting for the play. The Paradise tree was later placed in homes. The apples replaced by round objects such as shiny red balls.

Like most of the traditions all over the world, the putting up of the Christmas tree is one of the most awaited preparations of the holidays. Here in the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino, it is an annual tradition. Thus, in celebration of this, the hotel invites everyone for its Dazzling Christmas Tree lighting on November 17, 2017 at 6:00 PM at the hotel’s gem – the Grand Lobby.

Gracing the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel’s annual Christmas Tree Lighting with their presence will be the children of Kapwa Ko, Mahal Ko, who are also the hotel’s Corporate Social Responsibility Beneficiaries. Also to pleasure our ears during the event will be the UC Symphonic Orchestra with special performances of Jolianne Salvado and Jed Madela.

Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino is one of the well-known landmarks in the City of Cebu and is the premier venue for events and conventions in the country. Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino is located at Salinas Drive, Lahug, Cebu City, Philippines.
