You just know that Christmas is only a few weeks away when photos of festive decor and cheery sights start flooding your social media feed. There are videos of the amazing lights and sounds show at Ayala Triangle Gardens in Makati City, selfies taken at Bonifacio High Street’s Pixar Playtown, and snaps at Eastwood’s Enchanted Forest of Lights. Outside Metro Manila, there are government buildings that have taken on the task of spreading holiday cheer through colorful lights. Take, for example, Sorsogon’s 102-year-old Provincial Capitol, which is covered with LED lights that change colors.
