As the country emerges from one of the longest quarantines in the world, McDonald’s welcomes customers back to their stores with an experience like no other with the Ride-Thru Christmas Light Show! Until January 02, 2022, the young and young at heart are set to be transported to a festive and vibrant wonderland in three of McDonald’s Drive-Thru stores.

For customers who prefer to celebrate the holiday festivities from home, McDonald’s brings the light with the help of McDelivery Santa Riders. Make sure to keep a lookout for them this December as Santa Riders deliver happiness onto the streets and into one’s home with every McDelivery.

Christmas isn’t complete if happiness is not shared with others, especially those who need it most. Through the McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen, McDonald’s commits to sharing a festive meal with nearly 7,000 chosen beneficiaries, while all its stores combined will donate 1 million Happy Meal books and toys to school beneficiaries.

In line with this, 12 days before Christmas, McDonald’s will also launch its Share-A-Meal program, to give its customers a chance to give back with the opportunity to send McDonald’s meals to their charity of choice with no purchase requirement.

All a customer needs to do is to visit a McDonald’s store and fill out a Share-A-Meal card as McDonald’s will grant over 1,000 wishes and share over 18,000 meals come December 25.
