The City of Stars, Coke and the Araneta Center Tree Lighting Ceremonies

Sunday, November 14, 2010

I've been in Quezon City my entire life and part of the perks of being in this neighborhood is that you get to do a lot of things to entertain yourself when you're a kid. This after all is the city of stars. If you ask me what do you do to start the Christmas season here, that's easy! Just go to the Cubao - Araneta Center area and you'll find what you are looking for! It's huge and you won't miss it, it's the giant Christmas tree!

This has been a tradition and from the looks of it, Coca Cola promised to sponsor this event every year because they know how important this season is for every Filipino family. Sharing good times together wouldn't be also complete without that ice cold Coke on the Lunch/Dinner table. The crisp. spine tingling feeling we all have been enjoying for generations just got better too because now we have Coke Zero! Zero sugar with the same awesome Coke taste we love. It's definitely my personal favorite!

This tree is special because every year there's a corresponding tree lighting ceremony that comes with it. This event is adorned by stars put together by the people at Araneta Center and Coke. Regardless of what network they came from they all go here for one thing alone, it is to entertain the same people that made them famous and spread the holiday cheers. I always go to this place and get my fix of the COD mannequin stories until that transferred to Greenhills but I still watched this particular event. I love my city, Cubao, the Araneta's (who are by the way far relatives), Araneta Center and Coca Cola. My Christmas celebration wouldn't be complete without them!

Here are some shots I got from the event! Please enjoy!

See what I mean about this being the City of Stars? There were a lot more celebrities actually including Binibining Pilipinas winners. This is just one awesome night! It would be nice to see you all there next year too! Thanks Coke! Thank you also Araneta Center! You never cease to amaze me every year!
