The stars came out to sparkle and shine at the Promenade and Theater Mall when over a thousand small and big lanterns were lit, one by one, at the traditional Christmas Lighting Ceremony.
Encantadia star Sanya Lopez, Destiny Rose’s Ken Chan, heartthrob Hiro Peralta, hunk Jak Roberto, model Mac Manicad, and Tirso Cruz III along with Carla Martinez, Carla Abelllana, Donita Rose, and actor-director Gina Alajar pressed the button that switched on the lights and lanterns. John Nite, of the now defunct, Walang Tulugan with the late German Moreno was the host for the night.
In the past, German Moreno, or just Kuya Germs to us, glammed up the Promenade Christmas ritual by bringing along showbiz friends. This time, his friends (or mga alaga) carried on the tradition on his behalf.
Music Museum Group, Inc. President Precy M. Florentino said she will be forever grateful to Kuya Germs for his heartfelt support for the Promenade, Theater Mall, Greenhills Cinemas and the Music Museum. “Every year, he’d help to make Christmas here shine with a lot of stars. This year, I know he is still very much with us because all the stars seem to have come out tonight. We hope that our Christmas atmosphere here provides a sense of peace and happiness for everyone.”
The Christmas lighting ceremony kicked off Christmas festivities at Promenade and Theater Mall starting with the annual Christmas Bazaar called “Fashion +Toys = Christmas Joy,” Thursday to Sunday until Dec. 11 and daily from Dec. 15 to 22.
