First spaghetti Christmas Tree lit up

(The Philippine Star) - December 2, 2015 - 9:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Del Monte recently kicked off the Christmas season with a celebration to remember by lighting the first-ever spaghetti Christmas Tree in the country at Eastwood Mall last Nov. 22.

Combining the timeless symbol of the Christmas Tree with spaghetti, which is just as much of a staple for the Filipino Christmas, was such a visually stunning, novel and delightful way to welcome the season. It was a reminder that, indeed, Christmas is not complete without everyone’s favorite version of the best Filipino spaghetti which, of course, is made with Del Monte Spaghetti Sauce, PasKumpleto Ang Sarap.

The event started with the Del Monte Spaghetti Christmas Tree barely lit, with just a silhouette seen. Guests waited with curiosity as to what was so special about the tree to be unveiled. Christmas Trees have been executed in hundreds of ways all over the world. How different could it possibly be? Was it going to be an avant garde execution? Was it going to have the usual balls and ribbons? Lo and behold, after an exciting countdown, it was unveiled in such grand fashion with lights gradually lighting every delicious-looking bit of the spaghetti tree. The lights were orchestrated to dance with the beautiful voices of the award-winning Vox Populi children’s choir. At the end of the lighting festivities, everyone was delighted to see a tree ingeniously shaped to be the one thing that everyone — whether kids or kids at heart — looks forward to as the star of the Christmas season’s food festivities: Filipino spaghetti.

Graced by Marc and Danica Pingris, the lighting of the Del Monte Spaghetti Christmas Tree was a magical first-of-its-kind event in the country. It was also a complete Christmas celebration with carolers filling the air with joyous Christmas songs while the guests were also treated to deliciously sweet, meaty and cheesy Del Monte Spaghetti accompanied with various Del Monte dishes.

Because Christmas is also the season of giving, Del Monte provided the Pingris family and lucky media friends with the opportunity to complete the Christmases of their chosen charities as well by sharing the goodness of Del Monte Spaghetti with them. Each winning charity was given P10,000 worth of Del Monte Pamasko Packs for their noche buena. It was also announced that similar to how the Pingrises and media attendees were able to provide a PasKumpletong Sarap Christmas to these charities, visitors could also get a chance to grant a PasKumpletong Sarap Del Monte Spaghetti Christmas to their chosen recipients by dropping their nominees in the dropbox beside the Del Monte Spaghetti Christmas Tree at the Eastwood Mall Open Park until Dec. 26. Weekly winners will receive P10,000 worth of Del Monte Pamasko Packs.
