Maybe we can conclude that the universal symbol of Christmas is the Christmas Tree. All over the globe, thousands if not millions of Christmas trees are being lit every year during the yule tide season. Cebu is not exempted to this.
So, while you shop or take the road this Christmas, spot these gigantic and awe-inspiring Christmas trees just around the metro.
Fuente Pine Tree-Like Christmas Tree
One of the things I look forward to every Christmas is Fuente Circle's Christmas Tree. I always expect the Fuente Christmas tree to get better and better every year. When I actually saw the thing minutes after the lighting ceremony, the 120-feet tree surely looked better than how I imagined it. True. It resembles a very large pine tree but with white shining leaves.
I also think that the stars, poinsettia and buri fans helped emphasize the whole form and beauty of the Christmas tree. Aside from that, it was made stronger with typhoon-resilient design of steel and wood. I don't know about you, but I'll go check it out again this weekend.
Marco Polo's Christmas Tree of Hope
Marco Polo Plaza Hotel made it a point to set their Christmas tree for a noble cause. That is because if you purchase a Christmas ball for P200 from November 29 to January 5, you get to help the beneficiaries of GMA Kapuso Foundation.
Crown Regency's Christmas Tree
Laden with colorful Christmas balls, pointsettia and other decorations, Crown Regency's Christmas tree would bring back childhood memories of Christmas - the time when you still find gifts in your hanged socks.
Parkmall's Candy Christmas Tree
The gigantic Christmas tree surrounded by big and colorful lollipop figures could make you drool. Unfortunately, the candies are not for your tongues but only for your eyes.
Ayala Center's Two-Colored Christmas Tree
There's just something about Ayala Center's Christmas Tree. I don't know if the right word's magical or majestic but let's settle for both. The green and red color theme of this year's Ayala Center Cebu Christmas Tree is very different from last year's. You see, the photo above should convince you to check it out.
SM City Cebu Christmas Tree and Christmas Village
I was hitting two birds with one stone when I went to SM last weekend. Aside from getting a photo of myself with the giant Christmas tree, I also couldn't miss the opportunity to see the Christmas Village of Hope.
Like Marco Polo's Christmas tree, the Christmas Village of Hope is also for a cause. The funds that will be raised from the display will be used by the Kythe Foundation Inc. to help for the laboratory, chemotherapy and medicine needs of the indigent children with cancer.
