Christmas in the Philippines

As soon as the -ber months hit the Philippines, meaning from September to December, you will hear Christmas songs being played on the radio. Popular tunes like Jose Mari Chan’s Christmas in Our Hearts , Gary Valenciano’s Pasko na Sinta Ko ( It’s Christmas, Darling) and Pasko Na Naman Muli ( roughly translated as It’s Christmas Once Again).

Christmas is the best time for everyone in the Philippines because families are gathered and spend time together. It usually includes lavish food preparations with all the relatives. Some families spend it at a hotel and have Christmas dinner there. Celebrations vary depending upon the familiy’s preferences.

I will be showing photos of Christmas displays located in public areas like malls, and the like. Here are some of my favorite displays:


SM City Sucat Walt Disney’s Cars themed Christmas Tree

With reference to the movie Cars, the tree is made up of rubber tires. Beside the tree is a Disney signage you can take a photo with.
