  • Christmas is no doubt the most wonderful -- and beautiful -- time of the year, especially for Filipinos with our ever-enduring love of the season. During the holidays, Metro Manila dons its most extravagant and festive clothes with twinkling parols, glittering balls and ribbons, towering Christmas trees, and all manner of wonderful displays. You only have to go to the nearest mall to witness it!
