BEIJING - The highly anticipated 19th Annual Hilton Beijing Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony will be taking place on Saturday November 30, 2013. A three-story tall Christmas tree will fill the grand Hilton Beijing lobby with the festive warmth of the season. This year's event will feature musical performances by choirs from Yew Chung International School of Beijing, a Christmas Charity Bazaar and other special holiday programs. Adding more merriment to the Hilton Beijing Christmas, the famous "Hilton Beijing Christmas Train" will make its stop for the fourth year.

Located in the center of the grand lobby, the festive display, which was built by an outside international team of engineers and artists, will cover a 65 square meter winter landscape filled with cobble stone roads, cars, cozy homes, cafes, busy shops and town folks going about their daily holiday lives while model trains busily wind their way through the mountain and village tracks.

To decorate the festive season with more excitement, there will also be a Charity Bazaar where guests can look for Christmas gift ideas while contributing to the community.

"Christmas is not only about receiving, but also giving," said Stefan Schmid, general manager of Hilton Beijing. "For the past three years, we have successfully raised 100,000 RMB each year with the great support from our business partners. These funds have all been donated to a deserving local charity. This year, Hilton Beijing is proud to be supporting Morning Tears to help children who suffer from deep emotional traumas from having one or both parents in prison, with a loving and caring home, professional care and all they need to grow up with dignity and develop their full potential."

Guests are invited to join Hilton Beijing in welcoming the holiday season in style, and celebrating together with a whistle of the Hilton Beijing Christmas Train to spread the joy and happiness around.
