Hotel Yak and Yeti welcomes Christmas

  •   2017-12-01

Christmas is a festival religiously followed all over the world by everyone. Baking cakes and cookies prior to Christmas is said to be an omen for happiness. And to be a part of this, Hotel Yak and Yeti welcomed Christmas on December 1, by decorating Ginger Bread Houses cutting cookies and inaugurating a wish tree.


Seasons making and baking commemorates the tradition of making decorated gingerbread houses and cookies cutting which began in Germany about 200 years ago. After the publication of the renowned fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, German bakers began creating ornamented houses made from gingerbread. These treats flourished and spread around the world where many families celebrated Christmas by decorating these gingerbread houses as it was liked by kids as well.


The Sri Lankan Ambassador W.S Pereira, Etihad Airways Country Manager Pawana Shrestha, Pratima Pandey, Hyatt GM Sinead O Reilly-Henell and other guests took part in the Christmas decoration. They were given unlimited frosting, candy and chocolate and space for creativity and they used to make some imaginative gingerbread houses.


The hotel has also put up a wish tree where they are fulfilling wishes of the underprivileged children of Bal Mandir. They have hung up cards on the tree where the children have written their wishes. Anyone can take the honour to fulfill a child’s wish. The wish tree indirectly serves as Santa Clause.

Like every year Hotel Yak and Yeti will be organising Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day brunch.
