The Christmas celebrations began at The Imperial New Delhi which was decorated like a colourful Christmas wonderland over an afternoon tea with live counters and a master cook on a wintery afternoon. The indulgent buffet was adorned with perfectly crafted white Christmas trees and starry decor which spelled understated luxury. The grand feast included Christmas Stollen, Traditional Plum cake, Ratatouille Tartlets, Leek and Chicken pie, Macaroons amongst other delicious makes.
As a part of ‘Christmas with Hamleys’, the Hamleys Christmas parade takes place every year across all Hamleys stores. The idea is to spread the Christmas cheer as the Hamleys characters interact with people during the parade, creating a fun atmosphere and a memorable experience for kids and parents alike. The parade will take place across all Hamleys stores on December 25th between 5-8 PM.
The word Shangri-La defines an imaginary paradise on earth where life approaches perfection. The aura created at Shangri-La’s Eros Hotel, New Delhi was totally mesmerizing and jewelled with Christmas spirit. Shangri-La’s Eros Hotel hosted its Annual Christmas Tree Lightning Ceremony at the hotel lobby.
I could read the wishlist twinkling in the eyes of my son Siddhant when I told him that we have to visit Hamleys to check out the Christmas special activities. The preparation of wishlist goes the entire month of Christmas. On the very day of Christmas, kids are surprised with their favourite toys making them believe in the long lived tradition of a gift from Santa Claus.
The area outside Hamleys was beautifully decorated with a big Santa Claus and Christmas theme making it picture perfect. It surely had a magnetic effect which attracted kids as well as adults to the store. The spirit of Christmas was apparent everywhere.
Christamas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling.
The Christmas month has already arrived and so have the celebrations. Team ChicLifeByte was recently invited for the Christmas celebrations at Hyatt Regency, Gurgaon for their Tree Lightening Ceremony. As I entered the beautifully done up hotel, I met cute Simmi Sood, the PR Manager of Hyatt Regency, Gurgaon who was dressed in white, happy & smiling. It is always a pleasure to meet people who instantly lift up your mood with their bright smiles.
Feast your eyes as Le Meridien is transformed into Willy Wonka’s Chocolate factory. Yes, a chocolate factory! Read on to know more.
As I entered, I saw a huge 25 ft. tall unique Christmas tree in the lobby. What’s special about the Christmas tree is that it is made out of 3000 discarded CD’s which have been collected from several departments of the hotel & also contributions from conscientious guests who care about the environment. Fashioned out of about 3000 CDs, this special tree is a strong symbol of the hotel’s motto of managing e-waste and also adhering to the principle of ‘Reuse, Reduce and Recycle.’
