Le Meridien exuberated its Christmas glory with its grand decorations, a never seen before Christmas tree and a lady Santa along with a gingerbread hut where fun activities for kids were taking place. Wondering why a Lady Santa, that’s because this year’s Christmas celebrations were dedicated to ‘encouraging the girls’. Such creativity that too to convey a beautiful message across to the society. Breaking free from the stereotypes should be done once in a while and the intertwining of a festival with an important message added all the more meaning to the festivities. The unique Christmas tree was crafted in the shape of two young girls helping each other in the journey of life.
Christmas carols sung by the choir were setting the mood right. It was a true carnival for the kids as the Santa was distributing treats to them and a corner was dedicated to writing letters to Santa. Kids and adults alike were writing their messages and posting them in a letter box installed at the entrance of Longitude. Moving forward, there was a ‘Gingerbread House’ where the chefs were engaging children in cookie decoration. Kids also took a lot of interest in decorating eclairs for which a separate counter was set up. A photo booth was also constructed where people clicked photographs as their special memory of the day. Candy bowls were placed at various areas where kids could just dig in and take out their favourite candy.
The event also saw graduation of 25 young girls from diverse backgrounds who underwent training in all aspects of hotel operations which would enable them to go out in the professional arena for a job. This was done in continuation of hotel operations training programme flagged off by Mrs. Menaka Gandhi six months ago. Kudos to Le Meridien for fuelling such a noble cause.
A special Christmas carnival will be held on 25th December promising a lot of fun and frolic.
