A search on Google will show that the Philippines has one of the longest, if not the longest, Christmas seasons in the world. It actually starts in September, and lasts well into January — an unabashed celebration of the holidays.
Lights have been lit, not only on houses but in parks like this…
…where a light and sound show goes on every night until New Year.
Inside shopping malls there are giant Christmas trees, such as this one which almost fills the five-storey building.
And if that does not give you a sense of panic, there’s a countdown at the door.
Well, twenty-six days is not too far away!
In the Philippines, It’s Not This Time of Year Without feeling the Christmas spirit.
