The most wonderful season of the year is finally here. We’re pretty sure that you’re already planning to visit the mall and shop for gifts for your family and inaanaks. Whether you’re doing some Christmas shopping or just hanging out with the squad, make sure to visit SM Aura Premier in BGC as they celebrate the holiday season with wonderful and shining decorations.


Here are the reasons why you should check out their ‘Christmas in the Wild’ display:


It’s inspired by the African safari
After last year’s ‘Under the Sea Digital Water Experience’, SM Aura Premier brings a one-of-a-kind Christmas this 2018 with an African-inspired theme. Witness life-size installations of majestic creatures from the safari and sparkling stars and lights in hues of gold and green at the mall’s main atrium.

During the tree lighting ceremony held last Nov. 7, the audience was treated to an African-inspired ensemble, complete with drum circle and dancers dressed as animals of the wild. The program was capped off by an elegant aerial dance display, signalling the lighting of the tree.


There’s an interactive light show
In partnership with Huawei Mobile Philippines, they also launched an interactive light show called “Prism of Lights.” It’s an immersive display that interprets the beauty and wonders of the pristine night sky.


There are activities for the whole fam
SM Aura will make Christmas more magical with different activities that you can enjoy with the fambam. The kids will definitely love Santa’s Meet and Greet, and the Letters to Santa Workshop on Dec. 9 and 16. You can also get to enjoy the chorale performances on Dec. 8 and 15, and other musical acts on Dec. 14, 21, and 23.


Everyone is welcome
Get your cameras ready because you can experience all of these for free. Take photos inside the interactive light show or in front of the huge Christmas tree. Don’t forget to include #ChristmasAtAura and tag @SMAuraPremier on Instagram.
