The evenings grow longer and the mornings grow colder. It’s that time of the year when you hear a familiar kind of jolly music in the malls. With the start of the Yuletide season, people start thinking of special presents for the special people in their lives. The Ateneo Celadon helps bring in the Christmas cheer with Santa’s Attic: A Christmas Bazaar, a variety of concessionaire stalls and entertainment for everybody.
Santa’s Attic guarantees a wide selection of gifts. Beauty products, stationeries, accessories, snacks, beverages, and much more await their eager shoppers. The event is not complete without performances from members of various organizations of Ateneo, presenting the spectrum of talent the students hold in the musical arts. The warm tunes and the wide bazaar present a sparkling Christmas experience for all Christmas shoppers.
The Christmas Bazaar is a festive occasion too for Celadon. Celadon has many events throughout the year such as the Mid-Autumn Festival and the Chinese New Year, but what makes Christmas special is its power to connect people from all over. These include students cooperating with outside businesses and people from various fields to organize this event. Being men for others and going beyond the classroom walls, Celadon’s Financial Affairs Department takes great pride in organizing this once in a year happening.
Santa’s Attic is prepared to bring its Christmas shoppers the best it has to offer. The event will be at the heart of the shopping center, Glorietta 5 atrium, on December 17-18, just in time for the holidays. The bazaar will be open the whole day to give everyone a chance to join. As they say, ‘Tis the season and place to enjoy the festive mood for friends, family, and with other people. And, where else better to celebrate than in Santa’s Attic: A Christmas Bazaar where a shower of joy never seems to cease.
