Hey guys! A few more days and it's already Christmas! As we look around, the world is undeniably bursting with the holiday spirit. Malls are packed with shoppers and people are scurrying about happily talking about parties, gifts and other Christmas stuff. Though this season isn't supposed to be superficial, we can't help but channel that Christmassy feeling through our gifts, delicious food, new clothes, new gadgets, cheerful outlook, forgiving feeling and the most visible of them all -- Christmas decors.
|The Sky Garden at SM North Edsa. Happy Holidays everybody!|
Homes and cities around the world are now sparkling with lights and the colorful Christmas decorations are giving exceptional cheerfulness and happy feeling into the air. Cliche, but definitely true, right? And so, here are some of the Christmas sights I've captured with my camera as The Pinoy Wanderer explores the city of Manila.
|At Trinoma Garden. Took this picture while we were on our way to Conti's.|
|Still at Trinoma Garden. Bursting in red, these Poin... err, *googles spelling* ...Poinsettias|
adorn the steps leading to Starbucks.
|Saw these while we were boarding our cab. These posts outside Trinoma Mall|
outlined with thousands of miniature lights looked fascinating
|Huge colorful decors from the ceiling of Shangri-La Mall.|
|The Christmas Village inside Shangri-La Mall Plaza|
|The Mega Mall entrance. Look at all the lights!|
|There's a Christmas Train at the center leading to the entrance of Mega Mall.|
|Santa's sleigh inside Atrium at SM Mega Mall.|
|Saw these at the UP Diliman parking area. I'm sure they look pretty awesome at night|
|SM Mall of Asia looks awesome!|
|All across SM Malls, I noticed the theme revolved around lights.|
We all enjoy the festivities brought about by the season, but hopefully we don't forget the true meaning of Christmas. Beyond what is perceived by the eye, more than the sparkling lights and the holiday cheers, is the true gift that was given to us by Jesus. He came here to be with us, to save us and to tell us the truth. In our own journeys, may we know in our hearts what Christmas is really about.
|Nope, I'm not on sale but those Christmas trees are, haha!|
