Digicel Lights up Biggest Christmas Tree in Samoa

Sunday, 3 December 2018 - Apia, Samoa: Digicel Samoa officially lit up their Christmas tree on Friday evening with an open invitation to the public in an intimate ceremony in front of the SNPF Plaza. The Honorable Minister of Women Community and Social Development, Afioga Faimalotoa Kika Stowers-Ah Kau and the children from the Samoa Victim Support Group were the special guests for the night in addition to members of the public who gathered to witness the event. The 8 meter Christmas tree is a first and the tallest of its kind in the country and will be up for thirteen days in front of the SNPF Plaza for the public to enjoy. 

Digicel Samoa CEO, Farid Mohammed said, “We’ve had a rough start at the beginning of the year when we were hit with Cyclone Gita and with God’s grace and our resilient nature, we were able to recover and rebuild quickly. Christmas is a time where we come together with families and loved ones to commemorate and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and we wanted to create a space where people can come together, celebrate and experience the spirit of Christmas openly. The tree is here for all to come and enjoy and take photos anytime of the day or night”

 “We have other exciting activities to follow which include our annual visit to the Pediatric ward to present gifts to the children, a movie and pizza night for the children at SVSG at Apollo Cinemas, and this year, we are extremely delighted to partner up with the Church of Latter Day Saints, Upu Mana TV and other partners to facilitate the Island Christmas Festival at Malaefatu Park from 14 – 22 December. We will also

move the tree there so everyone that attends can also see the tree and take pictures.” 

In addition to the official lighting ceremony, a range of performances and activities were also included in the program for the evening. Digicel also treated the children and staff from Samoa Victim Support Group to a movie and refreshments in their main office as part of the festivities after the lighting ceremony.

“This is the beginning of an exciting month for us and our customers. We have a lot of exciting and innovative products to follow and on Wednesday, we will find out who the winners are for the trip to Christchurch to watch Joseph Parker’s fight on 15 December. Watch this space”, Farid added.

Digicel board, management and staff also takes the opportunity to wish all of Samoa a Merry Christmas.
