It’s getting to be that time of year again — and to help spread Christmas spirit and Yuletide joy to everyone in Seoul, Millennium Seoul Hilton will unveil its Christmas Tree and ever-popular Christmas Train on Tuesday, November 22nd. This year marks the twenty-first anniversary of this beloved holiday tradition.
For the last two decades, every year a grand 10-meter Christmas Tree is placed in the center of the main lobby to welcome guests to Millennium Seoul Hilton and warm people’s hearts with Christmas cheer.
In the Lower Lobby, designers and engineers skillfully recreate a miniature village in the Alps, complete with snow-capped mountains, tunnels, wooden bridges and hot air balloons. The highlight, of course, for both children and adults who are young at heart, is the Christmas Train, a collection of around 75 exquisitely handcrafted locomotives and railroad cars that will chug their way through the little village.
This year, the display will include appearances of Milton, the hotel’s mascot chipmunk, searching for Santa.
See how many times you can spot Milton as he looks for St. Nick!
The Christmas Train represents a time-honored tradition at Millennium Seoul Hilton. Now celebrating its twenty-first year, the unveiling of the Christmas Train marks, for many, the start of the Christmas season, much like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade does in New York. The spirit of Christmas is also remembered as domestic and international companies are invited to sponsor railroad cars. All proceeds are then distributed to a local charity organization.
The Christmas display will remain up for viewing until Sunday, January 15th, 2017.
