Christmas Decorations at Mid Valley Megamall
We are ending 2017 and time to celebrate the year end with a blast. With school holidays and Christmas around the corner, we brought our boys to visit Mid Valley Megamall to check out their Christmas decorations.
This year, the theme for the Christmas decoration is called ‘Home For Christmas’. The decoration revolves around the nostalgia of a traditional homecoming at Christmastime. The Christmas decoration is from 24th November 2017 to 1st January 2018.
It is the time of the year where friends and families get together for the festive season and Christmas. This is the time we get to spend more time together with our boys as it is school holiday now.
For those who are working outstation or abroad, this is the time for you to come home to visit your friends, families and loved ones. This the main reason why the trains and train station decoration in Mid Valley Megamall means so much as ‘Home for Christmas’. In the old days, not everyone has the privilege to fly as there was no such thing as budget airlines. Flying was for the rich and everyone depended on the road or train.
When we were younger, we always took the overnight train from KL to Singapore. That’s why the trains and train stations mean so much to us as ‘homecoming’.
The journey begins at the railway station in the English countryside, decked in the reds and greens of the season, and alive with the hustle and bustle of festive frolic.
The Christmas decoration at Mid Valley Megamall is located at two places, the Centre Court and the North Court (on Ground Floor). It is busy like Christmastime with many families, couples and friends taking pictures of this Christmas décor.
When our boys see the Christmas decorations for the first time, they were excited. Our boys were running around, checking out the chairs, the trees, the lights, the boxes, the telephone booth, the giant teddy and so many more.
Our youngest boy had so much fun, we went to hug the giant teddy and rested on it. There are a couple of giant teddies and they are so cute and comfy.
The red Telephone booth is also another highlight of this year’s Christmas decoration. Our boys loved it so much and they kept on playing with the phone.
Not forgetting the train station at the Centre Court is another great place for photo opportunity. Our boys were checking the train station and they had a great time and we as parents were busy chasing them around.
This year with the partnership with HSBC Bank, you can find carollers, performances, freshly-baked cookies, Christmas characters and the giant teddies.
We were told that Santa will be making regular appearances throughout this Christmastime in Mid Valley Megamall.
Say Hi Santa!
Kids for whom Christmas is not Christmas without Santa’s HoHoHo will be pleased to hear that for only RM10, they can have their photo taken with him. The proceeds will be channelled to the Agathian Shelter. Santa Meet & Greet sessions are from 14th till Christmas Day, at 1pm and 6pm daily, with an additional 3pm session on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
