    "Every time anyone passes by that street, they cannot help but pin their eyes on the colorful parols [a traditional Filippino Christmas decoration made from bamboo and paper]," she says.

    "Even I cannot help myself from smiling whenever I pass by that street and think of how devoted Filipinos are in celebrating Christmas. This happens only once a year, so residents combine their efforts to put them up."
