Fun family activities to try at SM Supermalls this holiday season


By Kristelle Bechayda

If you and your family haven’t made any plans yet for this Yuletide season, get your planners out and ready as SM Supermalls have a lot in store from exciting deals, fireworks spectacles, and holiday performances!


As a kick-off to this year’s #ChristmaSMoments, Christmas trees were lit up in SM branches across the country. SM Mall of Asia accompanied the lighting of its 50-foot Christmas tree with a musical show and an aerial performance when it launched this year’s Winter Wonderland theme.


Whether you are looking for presents to give or just want to have a good time, SM Supermalls have you covered to make your holiday season more fun and memorable. Check out these activities they have lined up for you and your family to enjoy:

Shop and give

Be entertained and score great deals from their Super World of Magic interactive mall displays and centerpieces or enjoy special surprises and promos from SM Mall of Asia’s magical snow globes.

Also celebrate the gift of giving through the SM Bears of Joy, where you get to buy two bears for only P200, one you will get to keep and the other donated to the mall’s chosen charity. This year, SM Mall of Asia’s beneficiary is the Kanlungan ni Erma. Click here to know the locations of the Bears of Joy booth in every SM Supermall branch.

Meet Santa and have your kids’ wishes granted

Bring your kids to a meet-and-greet session with Santa until Dec. 25. For more fun, take them to SM Mall of Asia, where Santa will be accompanied by his magical friends Leo the Lion, Hanna the Panda, Hailey the Hippo, Gerry the Giraffe, Macky the Monkey, Benny the Bunny, Cyril the Squirrel, and Elly the Elephant at the main mall atrium. Give your kids the chance to have their wishes granted too by sending their wish lists to #DearSMSanta. For more details on the mechanics, click here.

Watch performances and fireworks shows over the weekend

Take the family out for that fun weekend bonding by watching the holiday performances, which feature chorales, orchestras, and ballerinas. Don’t miss SM Mall of Asia’s Grand Festival of Lights Parade, where you can watch Christmas characters come to life as they dance around bright magical floats every Saturdays until Christmas day. The parade starts at 5:30 p.m. at the North and South arcades and concludes with a spectacular fireworks display at Seaside Boulevard.
