Marking the beginning of festive season, Hyatt Regency Lucknow Hotel hosted the traditional tree lighting ceremony on Sunday, 10th December. The Christmas tree lighting ceremony was promptly held at the pool side with the melodious sounds of children’s choir group and a dazzling show of fireworks. Select families were invited to participate in the ceremony.
Santa Claus made an exciting entry to the event, with a bag full of goodies, while all the children chorused Christmas carols in delight. The giant Christmas tree was then lit up in the presence of all the guests who came together to share in this beautiful celebration with Hyatt.
“Hyatt Regency Lucknow’s magnificent Christmas Tree attracted everyone’s attention this year. We kept the design of the tree traditional and elegant with a decoration theme of gold and red. Thousands of joyful ornaments, such as candies, gift boxes, tinsel pieces, gold ribbons, light bulbs, balls and violins were used to create a stunning Christmas tree displaying childhood memories. The tree was topped with a shining star, taking it to a glorious height with a truly spectacular visual impact”, said Kumar Shobhan, General Manager, Hyatt Regency Lucknow.
Many Christmas themed games and activities were also conducted at the event; Christmas stocking guessing game, Santa says and Christmas photo Prop being few of them. Post the lighting of the tree, everyone joined in the celebrations with Santa in Santa style dancing which was absolutely adored by the children present at the ceremony. The patrons were treated with traditional Christmas beverages such as Mulled Wine and cocktails. Christmas gifts were distributed among all as a token of lasting bond with Hyatt at the closure of the event.
The custom of Christmas tree lighting goes back to 18th century Europe, when Christmas trees were decorated with candles, which symbolized Christ being the ‘light of the world’. Displaying Christmas trees publicly and illuminating them with electric lights became popular in the early 20th century. Today, it has become almost a ritual to organise Christmas lighting ceremonies in all parts of the world as it marks the beginning of the festivities of Christmas and New Year.
