Christmas Lanterns

Christmas is definitely my favorite holiday above all. I enjoy seeing those Christmas house decors especially those exceptional and amazing decors at malls, hotels and business establishments like in Makati area. At home, hubby and I usually fill the front house with some decors and for this year we added one big lantern at the center of the second floor.

When it comes to lanterns, Pampanga is known for it and even designated as the Christmas Capital of the Philippines. For the locals who can’t afford to go to Pampanga to buy lanterns, Gilmore is a place where different stalls selling lanterns and other Christmas décors are being installed for a specific period. It is where we bought our lantern for 2,100 pesos. As compared to malls, it is best to buy these decors to these vendors because they have cheaper rentals and they personally manufacture their own items. They also accept repair and even customized décor as per customer request. To get the best price, hubby and I hopped those stalls and asked for a quote on a specific design and size of lantern. From the price of 3,000 pesos we saved 900 pesos. The lights and the decors give joy to people especially to kids that is why it’s been a family tradition to fill the house with some lights and decors for those kids walking by as well as carolers.

Now that life is quite tough with the current global crisis, let us always keep in ourselves the spirit of Christmas, LOVE, PEACE & SHARING, and let us pray altogether and wish the best for all of us. Advance MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
