Christmas in the Philippines starts early.
I mean the playing of Christmas songs.
The putting up of Christmas trees.
People usually do these at the start of ber months – September.
I was fond of taking pictures of different Christmas trees.
The bigger, the more unique and the more colorful the Christmas tree was, the more that I liked it.
As if there’s a magnet with these decorated artificial trees. It pulls me towards them.
Some though decorate real trees near their homes as their Christmas trees.
I am sharing some pictures of Christmas trees in different places I have been to.
This picture was taken in one of the malls in Bacolod city, southern Philippines.
I attended a conference and presented a research paper. We had a side trip after the paper presentations.
This was taken at a hotel lobby in Singapore.
It was so tall and colorful.
It was taken at Bacolod City in the Philippines. At the hotel venue of a conference I attended.
This was taken in Singapore. At the hotel lobby where we stayed for 3 days.
The first Christmas tree I decorated in Arizona.
It was a recycled one but still looked beautiful.
For this year I have not started decorating a Christmas tree yet. I am thinking of a real one.
But the small tree I saw, a permit is needed to get it. Respect for the environment.
Maybe my little tree in front of the house would do.
It has a bird house and an elf hanging there.
And a set of solar powered butterfly string lights.
Christmas this year would be extra special for us!
