    Christmas Lanterns


    Hanging Christmas Lanterns outside our houses is an old tradition that we Filipinos do every Christmas. Just like the lanterns you see in the photo, these lanterns are made from Japanese paper and bamboo sticks. Came recession, Filipinos learned how to be wiser in spending their hard earned money. We always think twice before we dig into our pockets. Since it is Christmas, the most important thing for us is to put food on our table during Christmas Eve. Buying Christmas decors became secondary; an alternative is recycling old Christmas decors. When I passed by this lantern store yesterday, it seems that they still have many Lanterns to dispose. Perhaps, recession is still in the air. I just hope that this coming year, it will be a better Christmas for all of us!
