The Holiday season is about to get brighter as Araneta City and some of your favorite stars join together – virtually this time around – to light up the iconic Giant Christmas Tree at the City of Firsts on November 14, Saturday.  

This much-anticipated Christmas tradition, now on its 39th year, is bringing some Holiday cheer far  and wide with Araneta City’s holiday theme “Comfort and Joys at the City of Firsts.” 

“We understand how the pandemic has affected everything, including the way we’ll welcome and celebrate Christmas. We want to offer a holiday comfort to the public in the safety of either our stores or their homes. And through this virtual Christmas tree lighting, we are looking forward to giving joy and hope this season,” according to Marjorie Go, AVP for Marketing of Araneta City. 

The event is going online for the first time and can be streamed through YouTube or Facebook  starting 5pm. It will be hosted by singer Anna Ramsey for the pre-event program, and TV host Robi  Domingo for the main program.  

Gracing the event are Tawag ng Tanghalan champion Janine Berdin, The Voice Teens alum Jeremy  Glinoga, and box-office star Vice Ganda who will virtually perform and join the tree lighting  ceremony. Araneta City also partnered with Coke Studios in bringing indie band December Avenue to  set the Christmas mood in the virtual event.
