DoubleTree by Hilton Agra ushered in the celebration of Christmas with its Christmas tree lighting ceremony with luminaries, guests and business partners from the city. The Christmas Tree at DoubleTree by Hilton Agra is unique which carries collection of local artefacts which is completely hand made. The tree has been made in collaboration with the Uttar Pradesh Tourism who helped the hotel connect with about 150 antigens from financially challenged backgrounds despite of the amazing talent and art they have. These families have lived on these handicrafts for generations and that’s how the skill is passed upon.
Shyam Kumar, General Manager at DoubleTree by Hilton Agra, said, “At Hilton we always believe in spreading the light and warmth of Hospitality in the communities we live and work around. The revenue generated from selling these products on the tree directly helps the artisans with no middle men. Please join us in this noble mission of making a difference in their lives and recognising their much-deserved talent.”
To spread cheer and welcome the season of joy, the culinary experts at the hotel has also built a larger-than-life Gingerbread house and set the table with Christmas delights ranging from stollen bread, plum cakes to varieties of festive cookies and mulled wine.
The event kicked off with carols sung by a talented band of kids followed by welcome speech from the General Manager. Soon after Santa Claus entered with a bag filled with chocolates and gifts which excited the bunch of children. Gourmet Christmas feasting was curated by the Executive Chef Ameet Rane and his team for the event, displaying an array of delicacies for high tea.
