Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you guys are having fun celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. Before this day is over, I just want to share this post and some photos we took at the Christmas Village in San Manuel, Pangasinan.
This is a late post because we went there about 2 weeks ago. I really am lagging behind regarding my posts and I still have my Ilocos trip that I haven't done posting yet. Promise, I will do it as soon as I can. Back to my topic. Three weeks ago, my brother and I were watching Rated K when they featured the Christmas villages in the country and the Christmas Village in San Manuel caught my eye. Why? Because I found it unique and it's just in a nearby town. I told my brother I want to see that place. So after a few days, off we went to San Manuel with my 2 brothers, sis-in-law and my niece Vernice. Hubby didn't want to go. He's not a night person. He prefer watching tv than gallivanting around.
When we reached the town of San Manuel, my brother parked our van past the town hall and we just walked going to the Christmas Village just in front of the town hall. We saw an array of Christmas light as we approached the place. There were many people around and likes us, I know they were really impressed. I was so amazed of how they made those Christmas displays and it truly is a sight to behold. At the entrance, you can see this framed tarpaulin and it's written "Welcome to the Windows of the World."
As we walked around, we've seen the famous tourist attractions from different countries in the world right before our eyes. What amazed me though is that most of the materials they used are recycled like empty plastic bottles, used plastic cups, plastic spoons of different colors, dried corn husks, beans, etc. It goes to show how creative Filipinos are and they really, really did a very good job! Our eyes feasted with the different tourist attractions in the world! We enjoyed everything around and of course my camera kept clicking. Li'l brother was my photographer. Take a look.
