You Haven't Seen A Christmas Village Decor As Pinoy As This OneMaligayang Pasko!
It's safe to assume that Christmas in the Philippines is like no other. We start the season in September and end it a weeks after the New Year; carolers knock on our doors as early as the first of December, and reunions happen almost every week. We have the Noche Buena on Christmas Eve, which is just an excuse to stuff ourselves with ham, quezo de bola, and fruitcake, only to eat some more on Christmas Day. These and more are captured through the inaugural Christmas village collection of Hello Bermonth.
Hello Bermonth began as a casual conversation between two overseas Filipino workers who would always reminisce about the holidays in their respective hometowns. They observed that Christmas villages are often snow-covered ski villages in the snowy mountains, a quaint small town in the countryside, or a traditional Victorian era cityscape. There hasn't really been one that represents the Filipino Christmas spirit. This is where Hello Bermonth comes in with its Pasko sa Barrio edition for 2016.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
It features the Cathedral San Gabriel (P1,290), a city hall (P1,090), a bahay kubo (P990) with parol, a local bakery (P990), a simple two-storey townhouse (P990), and Christmas tree (P690). There's also a puto bumbong stand (P490), little carolers (P490), a balikbayan (P490) welcomed home by her family (P390), a young couple attending mass (P390), and a sabongero (P390). The resin buildings and figures are all hand painted. Each collection is also limited to the year it's released.ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
