Filipino Christmas: Feel the Christmas Spirit in Cebu

Since everyone has been writing their Christmas posts already, allow me to share with you bits and pieces of what Christmas is like in Cebu. I went around the city to take pictures of the biggest and most glamorous Christmas displays I could find. Take a look and enjoy!

Every year, the Lhuilliers sponsor this tree for the benefit of the Cebu community.

The next few pics will feature a Christmas display contest in V.Rama Avenue, Cebu City. Several houses participate in the contest and try their best in creating the best Christmas display for their street. Some really put in much effort in their entries, as seen below.

This display probably has the most number of lights put up

After going around the most lavish Christmas displays in Cebu City, I realized nothing really beats spending Christmas in the company of loved ones at home. I'm excited to share noche buena with my family tonight. Christmas is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. :)
