Christmas Tree Light Up 2016 | E&O Hotel
Christmas in Penang is heralded with the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony at the E&O Hotel on the first of December. This signature event marks the month-long festivities in George Town.
The celebrated tree towering at six-meter and laden with stylish baubles, ornaments, twinkling fairy lights illuminate the echo-dome lobby of the heritage hotel. Christmassy slideshow images were projected onto hotel’s dome ceiling.
It’s a season for wintery merrymaking and singing of favorite well-known Christmas carol ”Silent Night” and the beloved carol proclaiming the birth of Jesus Christ in Bethlehem, “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.”
Guests snacked on canapés and enjoyed cocktails throughout the evening.
Santa Claus and his helpers mingled with the crowds. Both adults and children were happy to take photos with Santa.
