Christmas is my favorite season, never mind that I’m not religious. I love the spirit of it. I love the cheesy songs. I love giving presents. I love everything about it.
One of my favorite things about the season, living and working in Makati, is the lights. Every year, after Halloween, they turn on all the Christmas lights all around Makati and by mid-November, they start the Lights and Sound Show at the Ayala Triangle Gardens. Maybe it’s just the sap in me, but it truly is magical, standing in the middle enveloped by all those lights.
The light show this year started Nov. 16, 2012 and will be on everyday until Dec. 30, 2012. It runs every 30 minutes from 6:00 to 9:00 PM. If you get a chance, visit it. We were there last week and had dinner first, saw the show, and after just sat on the grass talking under the stars. People bring their loved ones and its a nice place to just hang out, so you can make a night out of it. Best of all, the light show is free.
