    The Gigantic Christmas Tree and the Moving Statues


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     iReporter LeviJun took these colorful images of Christmas decorations in Santa Rosa in the Philippines, a country where celebrating Christmas is taken to a whole new level. "I wanted to share how creative and beautiful Christmas is here in the Philippines," he said, "since we are known to be the people who celebrate Christmas from September to December!" Filipinos celebrate Christmas by attending "Simbang Gabi", a nine day series of masses beginning December 16. Our iReporter says that after attending all masses - on the last day, people make a wish and hope for it to come true.
