#CulturePH - The Manila Hotel Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

The Manila Hotel ushers in the holiday season with a festive celebration steeped in Filipino traditions, as they held their annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 9. 


The focal point of the festivities was the splendid Christmas Tree, meticulously adorned with opulent golden Ilang-Ilang blooms, a nod to the official flower of the Grand Dame. The color palette featured a harmonious blend of gold, natural hues, and vibrant red, creating a visually stunning display that resonated with the essence of the season. The concept and execution of this holiday d├ęcor were the brainchild of Mr. Rachy Cuna, The Manila Hotel Creative & Design Director.



The ceremony was graced by the presence of The Manila Hotel Chairman Basilio Yap, Vice Chairman Dr. Emilio Yap III, President Atty. Joey Lina, and Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta; along with esteemed guests including the City of Manila Mayor Maria Sheilah “Honey” Lacuna Pangan, City of Manila Vice Mayor John Marvin “Yul Servo” Nieto, Department of Tourism NCR Regional Director Sharlene Zabala-Batin, US Ambassador H.E. MaryKay Carlson, Nigeria Ambassador H.E. Folakemi Akinleye, and Miss Philippines Air 2023 Kerri Reilly. The Office of the President Chorale added to the festive spirit be serenading the audience with traditional Christmas carols.



“As we aspire to be a part of every family’s Christmas celebration, may our lit Christmas tree serve as a reflection of the hotel’s commitment to embodying the spirit of Filipino traditions this holiday season,” said Marvin Kim Tan, The Manila Hotel Director of Sales and Marketing.



Furthermore, in the spirit of giving and sharing, The Manila Hotel has chosen the House of Refuge as the beneficiary of their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives. The House of Refuge is a halfway house which gives shelter and provides the basic needs of street children.



With the Christmas Tree now aglow in the Grand Lobby, The Manila Hotel is set to continue spreading holiday cheer and preserving the spirit of Filipino traditions throughout the festive season.
