    The Christmas Tree and a Tree


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     RustonBanal photographed a dazzling Christmas tree in Betis, Philippines, on December 24. 'Betis is one of the many provinces of the world that treats the holidays season a real big deal since it is also a season where families and relatives who work abroad come home to be with their loved ones,' he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    This month is the month of the celebration of Betis' Town Fiesta which is happening on December 30. The town which was a Spanish trade center in the colonial period retained its Catholic tradition of venerating and paying tribute to its patron saint which is Saint James the Apostle. The Town Fiesta is one of the festive and biggest celebrations in the entire Province of Pampanga, Philippines being held annually.
