Christmas Decoration

It’s only 35 days before Christmas. Lat week my nephew Vince, hubby and I went to Pacific Mall Lucena. At the entrance of the mall we saw the giant Christmas tree with gifts and different kind of Christmas décor so I take a photo for them. Christmas décor Because Christmas decoration is an ornamentation used at Christmas time. The traditional colours of Christmas are pine green or evergreen snow white, and heart red. Blue and white are often used to represent winter, or sometimes Hanukkah, which occurs around the same time.

Anyway here are the photos taken.

PAROL

Christmas is fast approaching its only 39 days before Christmas. Yesterday Vince, hubby saw the different style of parol in the street. Then I bought parol for my Christmas decoration. The parol is made from wire, plastic and capiz with shining Christmas light that gives the happiness for every Filipino during the Christmas season. Anyhow, paróls is tradionally have a star-shaped framework made of bamboo sticks which are then covered by coloured pieces of either Japanese paper or crepe paper. The most common form is a five-pointed star with two decorative “tails”.

Paról is an ornamental, star-shaped Christmas lantern from the Philippines. It is traditionally made out of bamboo and paper and comes in various sizes and shapes, but generally the basic star pattern remains dominant.  It’s also retains its original association with the Simbang Gabi ritual, a series of dawn masses that lasts for nine days. These lanterns remain until January, traditionally removed after Ephipany to honour the Three Kings and their visit to the infant Jesus.

I choose belen design because it’s a Filipino term derived from the Spanish word for Bethlehem. Two or three-dimensional figures are usually found in a Christian nativity scene. Inside a barn or stable shows the child Jesus lying in a manger while Mary and Joseph watch over him. Oftentimes, the scene includes the Three Wise Men or Magi (with or without their camels), the angels, the shepherds and their flock, a donkey, an ox, and the Star of Bethlehem that led the magi to Jesus’ birthplace.

SANTA CLAUS

Santa Claus is a symbol of Christmas. Santa Claus is an imaginary character that is in many Christmas stories from the famous Christmas poem like The Night before Christmas and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. Based on wikipedia Santa Claus, also known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas and simply “Santa”, is a figure with legendary, mythical, historical and folkloric origins who, in many western cultures, is said to bring gifts to the homes of the good children during the late evening and overnight hours of Christmas Eve, December 24.

Anyway, Christmas is my favorite holiday season, because Christmas is usually a time that family and friends get together, eat great food, talk about old times and having fun.  Because the Christmas is coming my SIL bought many style of Santa Clause to sell her friends, neighbors etc. She gave me some pieces of Santa Clause to sell in my neighbors and friends. Each Santa Clause cost P390.00–P750.00. It’s made a paper machine and fiber glass. By the way, before I sell the cute Santa Clause I will take a photo in my display. Here are some photos taken:
