When the 1st of September kicked in I received a text message that went “happy “ber” months!”, signaling the beginning of what the Philippines considers the start of the Christmas season. Some households even start stocking up on Christmas decor.
As early as October, the faux holly and mistletoe go up, plastic angels looking down on hallows eve organizers making Halloween invitations.
On the news last night I saw footage of stores in Divisoria fully stocked with holiday decor at prices too good to be true. Looks like another trip to the 168 Mall is in order.
