Philippines has the longest Christmas celebration. When the "ber" months hit the calendar, Christmas season also fills the air. Filipinos really decorate their houses and streets with gleaming Christmas displays. Last Sunday, my children and I went to Ayala Triangle Gardens to dine out and watch this Festival of Lights. Many spectators really wait for the show wherein colored Christmas lights dance in time with Christmas medley. It is so amazing that even tourists patiently waited for the program to start. The show runs every 30 minutes from 6:00 o'clock to 10:00 o' clock in the evening. The picture was taken by my daughter.

those black figures are the people watching the show. You cannot see them because other lights were off so that people can really enjoy the dancing gleaming lights.
