Grand Millennium Hotel KL Annual Christmas Tree Lighting 2018

On the 30 November 2018, Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur hosted its annual Christma Tree lighting ceremony in the hotel lobby to usher in the Christmas festive season. Kicking it off on a high note, it was officiated by Mr. Teemu Laakkonen, the Charge D'affaires of the Embassy of Finland in Malaysia. The hotel's General Manager, Mr. Peter Gibbons was there as well to read his welcoming speech and to highlight the hotel's theme for this, a Winter Forest!

"Christmas is a time that we associate with joy and wonder. It brings with it a warm glow that lights up the darkness and makes our thoughts turn to family and friendship. Christmas is also a time when we begin to say goodbye to one year and look forward with hope to a new year to come. A year of opportunities for new possibilities, new beginnings and new growth. It signifies the spirit of giving without a thought of receiving and it is a time to give thanks for all the blessings that we have been fortunate enough to enjoy throughout the year," - Mr. Peter Gibbons, General Manager of Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur

The evening started with the usual speech by the hotel's General Manager, Mr. Peter Gibbons who spoke at some length about the spririt of Christmas and the hotel's Winter Forest attraction. This was followed with a speech and a reading of Santa's Letter by Mr. Teemu Laakkonen, the Charge D'affaires of the Embassy of Finland in Malaysia. Once all was said and done, they lit up the Christmas Tree and unveiled the Winter Forest for all to see. The "Magical Winter Forest" theme consists of 46 live juniperus chinensis pine trees, complete with fluffy white snow, and illuminated reindeers, owls and squirrels.
As per their tradition, we next moved towards adorning their 20 foot tall Christmas Tree with 120 Golden Stars which carried the name, gender and age of 60 children from the PAediatric Oncology Unit of the General Hospital Kuala Lumpur.
