MANILA, Philippines — Greenhills Mall, the country’s premier shopping, entertainment and dining destination, has opened up a world of magic and splendor with the unveiling of its first-of-a-kind Christmas attraction last Nov. 8.

The Greenhills Christmas Village at the lobby of V-Mall features five mini villages, the Gingerbread House, Chocolate Factory, North Pole Office, Mrs. Claus Daycare and Santa’s Workshop. Each is adorned with snow-covered houses, Christmas trees and lush leaves, lights and lampposts, holiday trinkets and even chimneys.

“We thought of the Christmas Village theme, which caters to different ages and really simulate the Christmas spirit in an indoor environment,” Ortigas & Co. president and CEO Jaime Ysmael told philstar.com.

And while the iconic Christmas on Display will be missed this year, Ortigas & Co. promised the same experience to all who have been spending Christmas at Greenhills every year.

“This year’s attraction is a little bit different from the traditional Christmas on Display primarily because we wanted to bring people to the mall, plus the fact that we don’t have a space outside because of development. But it’s going to be the same kind of experience that we offer to all of our shoppers,” Ysmael added.

San Juan City Mayor Guia Gomez, who graced the event and personally toured the Christmas Village, commented, “This is also a very intimate one where everybody can enjoy.”

She noted how Christmas at Greenhills had always been about giving back to the community. “Ortigas & Co. and Greenhills Shopping Center, Christmas for them is always (about) sharing. The many blessings that they have, they share it to so many.”  – Euden Valdez/Philstar.com
