A Christmas tree lighting ceremony was organized this evening at Éclair – the lounge at Courtyard by Marriott, Bhopal. The tree was decorated with holiday lights and Christmas décor. This traditional community event marked the opening of the Christmas holiday season.
Mr Vijayan Gangadharan, General Manager, Courtyard By Marriott, Bhopal said “This is a great start for the Christmas season. I always enjoy the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony.”
Mr Vijayan welcomed the guests present to the ceremony and spoke about the history of the tree lighting ceremony and how it progressed and changed through the years. He also spoke about the birth of Jesus, who was born very humbly in a tiny town but has made a big impact on the world. He said the meaning of light and love of Christmas comes from Jesus himself, and our Christmas Trees represent that love and light.
