When you think about Christmas, first thing that comes to mind are the Christmas tree, lights, and lanterns. We grew up visualizing Christmas as a picturesque holiday that is filled with reunion parties and good food for friends and families to enjoy. The season of giving is anticipated not only for the aguinaldo that we will receive from our ninongs and ninangs but also for the various attractions with a grand display of shimmering decorations, perfect for the gram.
Now that we only have less than two weeks before Christmas day, take time to visit these Instagram-worthy spots around the metro to fully feel the spirit of holidays.
