Its The Time of The Year Again! Meralco Opens Christmas Village

The Huge Belen remembers Jesus' birth

Its Christmas again! And what better way to celebrate it than seeing the twinkling lights here and there. Fortunately for us in the Metro, a public Christmas Village has opened its doors once again and feast our eyes with magnificent lights and humongous displays.

The Family the Prays Together, Stays Together

Located at the Meralco Compound in Meralco Avenue, Ortigas, Pasig City, The Christmas Village features a display of light and the icons of the traditional Yuletide Season in the Philippines. A giant Nativity statue made of copper wires, a concept of the "Simbang Gabi", Pinoy houses made of sawali are featured on the right side in front of the compound.

Beautiful Homes and Lights

While on the left side, American homes, a giant robot and a huge Christmas Tree was housed for the visitors to enjoy. You can even go upstairs of the houses, if you want to have your picture taken.

Choo, choo, chooooooo!

As an added treat, kids and kids-at-heart can ride the train that goes around the Christmas Village for free. But of course, we can hope for a shorter line. Good thing not too many people visited last night so we took turns on the train without waiting for so long.

Nothing beats a lovely tree for Christmas

The theme "Maliwanag ang Pasko" lived to our expectations. Although unlike last year, their lobby was also dressed up for the holidays. Now they have this miniature basketball court design. But dressed up lobby or not, the Meralco Christmas Village is a place worth visiting. And yes, its for kids from one to ninety-two.. and even further.
