The Philippines has the longest Christmas time as they say commencing as early as October.  And what is Christmas without a Christmas tree.  The setting up of public Christmas trees in towns, cities and shopping malls have been a common practice to make us feel its Christmas - a season of thanksgiving.

The year 2013 being a year of challenges for the country, Christmas trees from various parts which I visited conveyed varied meanings.  From the usual and repetitive design down to the most recycled components that make up the tree, messages of stability, happiness and of hope is being imparted.

As another year starts and Christmas trees are now being kept again for months, let us reminisce on some of the known ones in the metro.  The decorated trees conveyed varied expressions of hope, of love and of unity.
