Yuletide Symbols VII: "The Christmas Holy Family"

Welcome to the last part of my Christmas special for this year! Like the previous, these pictures were taken in the SM Mall in Makati City using my mobile digital camera!

How important to you is your family? As a Filipino tradition, we have the so called, "close family ties" which keeps a bond between each members of the family. And during special occasions like Christmas, family reunion is still in practice. With lots of foods or no foods at all, keeping each members of the family intact is the best spirit of Christmas for most of us!

So for our last part, I know being a Filipino, Belen or the miniature Holy Family during the birth of Jesus Christ best symbolizes the Filipino Christmas! Therefore, I have here with you the different variations of Belen taken from the mall displays! Try to browse each of them. Which of them do you like most?!

Birthplace in the Sand...

Jesus Under The Christmas Trees...

Green Pastures!

In a Simple Place...

A Red Christmas!

A Royal Family!

A Royal Birth of A King!

Now, what can you say about each pictures? Do they exactly replicate the Holy Family when the infant Jesus was born? Which of the above images best portrays the birth of Christ?

Being a religious person, Belen like the pictures above is my favorite Christmas symbol! It remimded us of the story of Christmas and how Jesus Christ was born in a very simple place. Amazing to know that the 'King of all Kings' was born in a simple manger, a birthplace for the horse! This also reminded us how cruel the people in the world. is During that time, they didn't even allow Mary to give birth on their houses leading Mary to gave birth in the manger!

Well, if I were to ask you, will you consider Belen as the best symbol of Christmas?! Or if you were to choose between parol and Belen as a symbol of Filipino Christmas, which of the two will you prefer?!

Hope all of you really enjoy my month-long Christmas special! If I were to ask you, which of the 7 part do you like most? Christmas trees, Angels, Santa Claus, Gold or Red Christmas, Gift and Giving, Infant Jesus, or our latest Belen, which do you really love?! Feel free to give your feedback and comments! See you on the next Christmas...!!! c",)

Maligayang Pasko Po!!!

Yuletide Symbols VI: "Baby Jesus in the Manger"


Merry Christmas to all of you!!!! Wishing you all the best this season!

Here is now my second to the final Christmas special for this year! Again, these pictures were all taken in the SM Mall, Makati City using my digital mobile phone. I put this part on the very day of Christmas since this thing is I think the most significant symbol of Christmas! Yup, without the birth of Him, do you think we will celebrate Christmas?!

Above and below are the pictures of baby Jesus during His birth. Try to take a glance of the different variations of the infant Jesus!

Child in the White Sand...

The Infant in the White and Green Christmas!

A Royal Baby...

Almost all over the world, we celebrate Christmas. All nations joined-hand every year to commemorate the most important time of the year!

Infant Jesus is I think the most important symbol of Christmas. In all the displays around the malls, churches, streets, or even in the plain houses, you could always see child Jesus. Cute, tiny, huggable...seeing a baby Jesus, you will like got inspired!

Just like in the pictures, it comes with the different variations and styles. Every country had their own designs of infant Christ. But the good thing was that, they didn't remove the original birthplace of Jesus which is the manger! Infant Jesus in the manger keeps us reminding of the original story of Christmas, its true meaning, its real symbol!

So, with my few pictures above, feel free to choose which among them is the best symbol of infant Jesus during his birth! Your comments and suggestions are also welcome!!! c",)

Wishing You All A Merry, Merry, Christmas...!!!
