Christmas Lanterns in Las Pinas

Early this evening, Sam and I went to what is called in Las Pinas as Plaza Quezon. I love going to Plaza Quezon during this time of the year because of Christmas lanterns or parol that are made and sold there. Lanterns are available in many colors and are made out of a variety of materials -- paper, plastic, indigenous materials, capiz shells, etc. You can find lanterns ranging from P15 to P2500 or more.

When I saw this, I can't help thinking Ruby Tuesday, Mellow Yellow, Orange Tuesdays, Colorful Weekend Color Connection, Mommy Moments. LOL!

We bought just a small lantern that Kuya Basti can bring to school. It cost P60. I forgot how much the tulip shaped lanterns are but they're so beautiful. Sam was so willing to have his photo taken with these beautiful Christmas decors in the background.  This photo is his KID entry. 

They even have snowmen made of capiz shells. This one cost P2500. It's almost as tall as Sam. 
And this is for my Wednesday White. :)  The snowman's body is white but does not look so because of the lighting inside. 

You can see more of the Las Pinas Christmas Lanterns at my other blog HERE. But I still need to make a post there so I'm hoping by the time you drop by I've already done that. Hope you can also support our lantern makers in Las Pinas. If you're around the area or just passing by from Baclaran to Alabang or vice versa, do check them out. Plaza Quezon is just a few blocks away from the Las Pinas Bamboo Organ Church. Better to drop by during the evening so you could enjoy the lights, too. 

Thanks for the visit!
 There are great digikit freebies located at the sidebar under DIGISCRAPPIN'.
