Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at MLH

Mount Lavinia Hotel unveiled the magic, mystery and mirth of the season, as we commenced the iconic yuletide festivities with the symbolic lighting of the first recycled Christmas tree on 25th November at the Courtyard.
We could say rain rain go away…come again another day! But alas no matter how many times people said it, it didn’t go away and it didn’t stop the spirit of people who were waiting eagerly for the lighting of the Christmas Tree and begin the Christmas celebrations of 2011.
MLH’s own Engineering Team definitely found a very unique way to celebrate Christmas and in a greener way. This truly “green” tree was constructed from materials like jute, newspapers, flour and even cement, just a few to mention. This Christmas tree is both environmentally friendly and clever. Every year one gets frustrated to hear the same old same old ‘plastic tree’ versus ‘cut tree” debate – when the most environmentally friendly option by far is simply to get a living tree instead. Nowadays, most of us recycle. As always, one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. Some people are just more creative than others,
The greatest part of the evening was when all four religious dignitaries came together with GM Anura Dewpura and lit the tree, with fireworks and bagpipers exalting the evening. Voice Print, Souls Sounds Juniors and Choro Calibre did justice too to the evening with their soulful voices brining out their colours in true spirit.
Finally in Anura’s speech he said, “May the lighting of the Mount Lavinia Hotel’s Christmas tree ablaze the flame in your heart, to spread peace, harmony, happiness, hope, love and abundance to others…was most fit”.
Before tossing out your trash, go take a look at MLH’s recycled Christmas Tree and enjoy iconic traditions synonymous to Mount Lavinia Hotel and world over.”
