Eastern enchantments



For Filipinos, Christmas is about magic and wonder. It is also about recapturing the enchantment of childhood and the comfort of tradition.

Capiz installations are wrapped around the trees that line Ayala Avenue in Makati City to complement the altars. To lend more color and whimsical elements to the overall design, totem poles symbolizing the 12 days of Christmas are installed between the altars.

Magic and wonder are conjured by the decors, Christmas trees and light installations in the eastern part of Metro Manila, particularly the cities of Pasig, Mandaluyong and Makati.

With Estancia’s Sweet Illusions Rooms, one can take very Instagrammable photos of the four rooms––Tutti Frutti, Candy Blast, Sugar Rush and Dark light.

Along Ayala Avenue in Makati, the lights and light installations capture festivities and traditions such as the Simbang Gabi and Misa de Gallo highlighting the importance of the church and the community.

It’s the time when people come together in friendship, celebration and worship. In Pasig, decorations and light shows become fanciful as there are giant candies and floating gift boxes.

Pass by these areas and experience sheer holiday delight.
