The Parol or Christmas star signifies the start of the Christmas season in the Philippines. I am reblogging an old Haiku because nothing makes me think of the holidays more than this beautiful Christmas lantern made only in the Philippines. I had to order one a few years back and when we went home for a visit, had to specially wrap it and marked as fragile (they are made from Capiz shells) for our trip back to the US. There you go! It’s not this time of year without…. MY PAROL!
Hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving!!!
