Inspired by the beautiful native hand woven fabrics from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, Makati City welcomed the Yuletide season with a traditional street lighting ceremony – an annual tradition that transforms the premier business district into a Filipino Christmas haven.
Paying tribute to the cultural heritage of the Philippines, Christmas symbols with intricate Filipino patterns from various regions -- Inabel and Burdado from Luzon, Banig Tikog from Visayas, T’Boli, Ukil and Yakan weaves from Mindanao -- will illuminate the streets of the central business district, creating a festive and harmonious atmosphere.
These patterns are applied to gigantic representations of Christmas symbols, transforming the streets of the city into truly Filipino Christmas landmarks. As the lights come alive, Makati’s wonderful streetlight decors will once again wrap everyone in the magical spirit of the season.
The whole stretch of Ayala Avenue, Paseo de Roxas, and Makati Avenue will be adorned with colorful lights that bring to life the spirit of Christmas. This is the largest display of Christmas lights in the city and a well-loved Makati tradition that has brought the community together. This year’s bright and energy efficient lights are courtesy of Firefly Lighting Corporation.
Makati’s Christmas street lights continue to brighten up Christmas celebrations every year for everyone—from the thousands who work in the city to those who call the city home, as well as those who visit its various business, lifestyle, entertainment and cultural destinations.
“Christmas is the highlight of the year for Filipinos, and we always want to make it special for everyone. By mounting an exquisite Christmas display, and through the Festival of Lights, we provide venues for people to enjoy the spirit of the season,” said Shiella Aguilar, Ayala Land Project Development Head for Makati
Indeed, no other city celebrates Christmas the way Makati does.
