#AtriumWSF15 Quaid Day/Christmas Celebrations – A Pakistani Winterlude to Remember

Packed with unbridled excitement and bringing the best of joy to the crowd, Team Atrium Mall celebrated Jinnah Day and Christmas with great fervor on December 25, 2015 in Karachi.

Followed by the grand fashion extravaganza, the #ColorsOfWinter Fashion Show being held earlier on December 19, 2015, the following event added more shades to the season’s celebrations while offering something for everyone at the venue.

Starting off with an exhilarating parade featuring a band of drummers, the celebrations became an instant hit amongst the audience who were delighted to see the performance.

The musical parade was then followed by the cake cutting ceremony and fireworks to mark Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah’s birth anniversary.

While the crowd cheered and chanted enthusiastically, we anxiously waited for the most exclusive part of the birthday celebrations to begin, which was none other than the final reveal of Quaid-e-Azam’s portrait (on 35ft x 15ft canvas) called #LifeOfJinnah being made by Pakistan’s well-known graffiti artist, Sanki King.

A huge round of applause filled the entire hall as soon as the stupendous portrait was revealed and we are pretty sure that everyone liked it since nobody left that place without taking a picture or a selfie with it!

While the final reveal had already captivated the crowd with its creativity, the other element that added more excitement to the festival was the Christmas celebrations. Atrium Mall had set up a fully-decorated activity area where one could spot the ever-amusing and vivacious VJ Godil engaging the audience in various games and giving away gifts like the generous Santa! *smiles*

And who wouldn’t love to have presents on Christmas, right?

While we weren’t able to make our way through the huge crowd and get our share of candies, we decided to walk around the shopping mall where we spotted some amazing discounts at many of the leading stores including Levi’s, Amir Adnan, Cambridge, Essence De Paris, etc. (The discounts and deals are expected to continue till January as a part of ongoing Winter Shopping Festival).


The exciting trip to the winter wonderland came to an end with a quick meet-up with VJ Godil (who I would love to call as Santa Godil now) and lots of wonderful memories to cherish for a long time.

Tis' a season to be jolly fa la la la la!
