Merry Christmas -- Malipayong Pasko

'Tis the Season to be Jolly
These are the decorations
for the Sibulan Christmas party
on 19 Dec 2008

The Sibulan Branch Primary
in their pose for the Nativity Scene.
Notice the angels in a single white sheet,
and the sheep below -- also in a single white sheet.
We did not have enough materials
for individual sheep and angels, therefore,
let your imagination help, please!
One wiseman has a crown
and another has a headband
(Bet you didn't know one wiseman wasn't interested
after all those miles on his camel.)
Joseph with the white sash is Ged Galvez
whom we taught and
he was baptized by his Father
3 weeks ago

Another Nativity Scene which
we saw in front of a local native crafts shop

Here is a tree displayed
inside the same shop made of
a burlap type of cloth
scrunched and colored
to give it the right shapes
-- kinda cool!

Then, we caught this one
in the process of being made of corn husks.
It is being displayed outside a grain store
in the marketplace
Another tree is shown
from a local fast food joint, Jollibees,
which is seen as you leave the drive thru window
This one is in the window of the Petro Station,
made of cans of engine oil.
and finally, the one at our house!!

Merry Christmas to all,
and to all Good Night.

We liked your photos of Christmas celebrations in the Philippines. We hope you had a good Christmas. Ours is certainly a white one.
