Quezon City's Giant Christmas Tree Is Making Your Weekend Brighter
It's the most wonderful time of the year.
(SPOT.ph) The Philippines probably has the longest Christmas season. It starts as soon as the “-ber” month arrives, and lasts until February—when lantern decorations are changed into heart-shaped paper cutouts and bright lights are replaced with anything and everything red. Araneta City, as part of its annual tradition, is once again kicking off the celebrations by lighting its giant Christmas tree on November 8, 5 p.m., in Quezon City.
The night will also be much brighter as celebrities Anne Curtis and Idol Philippines winner Zephanie, with hosts DJ Chacha and Fifth Solomon, join the grand festivity in welcoming the most awaited time of the year. The one-night event will end with a bang through a grand fireworks display.
Cubao is one of the oldest business districts in the city. The district has several malls—in case you're starting to shop for Christmas—as well as a wide selection of restaurants where you can take a break from all the gift shopping. It’s also home to Novotel, where you can have your staycation during the holiday season. Their giant Christmas tree has been around for decades now, with the tradition being introduced back in 1981.
Christmas and the City is on November 8, 5 p.m. at Times Square Food Park, Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City.
