Gigantic ‘Little Drummer Boy’ thumps SM City Clark

Merry ChriSMs all the way! This is the warmest message the SM City Clark family can give to all the mall lovers for the merriest season as it also rocks everyone with the grand display of the  ‘Giant Drummer Boy’ at the Event Centre this November 06, 2010.

A mechanical doll, which is synonymous to the poor but giving boy from the classic carol ‘The Little Drum Boy’, it measures up to 23 feet, making it the center stage for this year’s Christmas motif for SM City Clark. Starting on Saturday, everyone can now fulfill a true blue Christmas playground as the ‘Giant Drummer Boy’ arrives. This should be more fun with glittering lights that call for the yuletide as well as different renditions of famous Christmas tunes.

Every year, SM City Clark has been consistent in transforming its place with Christmas fantasy themes that all children—and children at heart, would love. From the Giant Santa Clause, Giant Gingerbread House and last year’s Giant Snow Men, now comes another enormous version called The Giant Drummer Boy.

Popularly came from a Christmas song by the pianist Katherine Davis, ‘The Little Drum Boy’ tells about a penniless boy who delighted both the Holy Mother and baby Jesus by his playful and giving drumbeats. A classic carol, no childhood can ever forget that famous ‘rum pum pum pum’ hum which, for a record, actually includes 21 repeats from the entire lyrics!

‘The Little Drum Boy’ (1941) from that on has become a surefire hit not only from happy folks excited of Christmas but also to famous musicians with versions from fashion icon Marlene Dietrich, rock star David Bowie, to the cute and full of lesson program called Trapp Family Singer. In fact, even Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey had their own. Who could not love the ‘The Little Drum Boy’?

The song also reminds us that the best gift for the greatest Birthday Celebrant of all mankind is sheer charity, no matter how small. And what better way if one can have something to spend this Christmas than a strolling of fun with family and friends at SM City Clark to meet the huge ‘Giant Drummer Boy’ one can ever see!

But the fun never stops as tons of exciting events will surely delight our valued shoppers. The Pyromusical show will illuminate the sky all Saturdays of December, 8 PM at the Meeting Place. Be thrilled as Santa Clause will be meeting kids, listening to wishes and posing for pictures all Saturdays and Sundays of December at Cyberzone!

Merry ChriSMs all the way!
