The North Pole Christmas Experience in SM City North EDSA


Christmas season starts up many wonderful things.  The Christmas breeze brings in the cool weather everyone loves.  Streets and houses are dressed up with fascinating Christmas lights and fabulous decors.  Carols begin to rule the airwaves anew.  Bonuses start to come and eventually shopping becomes a nationwide festival!  :)

Come Christmas time, let's admit it, we always ran out of time.  I don't know if it we are really into Christmas rush or we really become extra busy when this season arrives.  And with that, it's inevitable that we are smart enough time to maximize our very limited time.  Let's say for example we do shopping, we somehow hope that everything else that needs to be done can be in the same place.

Recently, SM City North EDSA invited me to witness the special thing they did in the mall that the whole family will enjoy!  It's something that can let us do the shopping spree and at the same time give our family, especially  the kids, that special Christmas treat!

Upholding the value of the NORTH, SM City North EDSA introduced the Northpole Christmas which recreates Santa’s life in his home North Pole, the place where Christmas keeps on burning, despite the cold weather :). It is where kids and kids-at-heart unite to experience the joy and wonders of Santa’s snowy village where dreams come to life and wishes come true!

In North Pole, we can learn more about how Santa makes kids' toys and gifts with the help of his elves. Kids might even find their gifts! Play with the reindeer in the Reindeer barn. Visit the Mrs. Claus Kitchen where she bakes best-tasting cookies!  Santa is up for a tour in his place and give each kid a merriest and most exciting holiday season right in SM City North Edsa!  Here are the details of the attractions in the SM City North EDSA North Pole. 

Santa’s Den

Mrs. Claus Kitchen 
The best baked goodies from the Northpole come straight from here. Mrs. Claus Kitchen is where you can find all the yummiest pastries. While the elves and Santa pound and paint away in the toy shop, Mrs. Claus spends countless hours mixing, pouring, and baking goodies for their reward. Christmas baking wouldn’t seem complete without those gingerbread men and Christmas cookies. So indulge yourself with these delicious and mouth-watering treats!

Santa’s Mailroom 
Have you sent Santa your wish list yet? Then it’s here in the Mailroom! All the mail that kids send to Santa every year ends up here. The elves help Santa go through the mail to make sure that he knows exactly what kind of gift kids really want. Of course, Jolly old Santa can’t read our letters and think of gifts all by himself. That is why he has lots of hardworking elves working for him. They bring him all the mail, help him sort and read every single one, and make notes as Santa picks out the perfect gift for me and you. After Santa and his elves decide on the perfect gift for each kid, the magic begins in the Toy Shop!

Santa’s Toy Shop 
Santa’s Toy Shop is where all the toys and goodies come from! Santa and his elves work hard way before Christmas, just to make the perfect gift for all the good boys and girls of the world. It’s amazing to watch how fast each elf works to make a perfect doll, train set, or teddy bear! Are you excited to find out what you’ll get this year?
