Take Your Family Pic at These Instagram-Worthy Christmas Displays Around Metro ManilaThese malls and hotels pull out all the stops to bring the Christmas cheerby Lei Dimarucut-Sison .
It's the first week of December, only three weeks away from Christmas. If your Christmas tree isn't up yet, you're not alone!
As much as we all would like to put up our Christmas decorations at home early (which, they say, ups your happiness level), well...life happens. With all the things you need to do at work and at home, and with only so little time left, you may be thinking about foregoing the Christmas decor entirely. You know what — it might not be a bad idea at all, because your sanity and keeping your stress levels to a minimum are more important! (Okay, how about just one tiny tree?)
Kidding aside, it's quite easy these days to get into the festive spirit without much effort (or cost): just visit your favorite hotel's lobby, or go to a mall near you! Here are some of them:
