One village in Sta. Rosa, Laguna, Philippines wanted to get a head start in decorating for Christmas. They went beyond the decorations we commonly see during these times. A large elephant-shaped plant sculpture that is almost 10 feet tall and 15 feet wide, that I would like to call "Santa's Special Helper", is the first thing that you would see as you enter the gates of the village. With its eye-catching lights and size, it would be impossible for you to miss it. In all the years that Filipinos have this tradition to always go all-out and give it the best of their efforts in preparing for Christmas, I can say this is the first time that I have seen an original and unique decoration such as this. Definitely a new way to show love and make everyone feel that Christmas really is on its way.
