Saturday was not a very busy day at work for me, and this is unusual. We took advantage of my free time to go somewhere different to experience early Christmas. The Christmas season is celebrated early in this part of the world, where Christmas-related decorations are displayed alongside Halloween costumes and what-have-yous.
We went to Greenhills Shopping Center for a dose of shopping, to watch the annual Christmas show from COD Family and also to meet my brother who will be sleeping over at home.
My children enjoyed the show though is was drizzling when we were watching the show and I wasn’t able to concentrate taking photos and listening to the narration.
The show features a church, a priest, people as family members going to church (they look real to me whose eyesight is blurred), a horse-drawn carriage, a carabao-drawn cart with fruits, and a marching band.
The background has mountains, waterfalls and nipa huts.
The Annual Christmas Show talked about Filipino traditions like the Misa de Gallo or mass novena which starts during the December 16 with 4am masses till the 24th. This is a series of masses in preparation for the coming of Christmas.
On the other hand…
