It is only in the Philippines that Christmas trees are put up as early as November, in anticipation of the holidays. After Halloween, we started shopping around for Christmas-y stuffs to fill the house with, and within two weeks, the ubiquitous pine tree was dressed up in flowers, silver orbs, and lights. With the Philippines being a tropical country, we can only do with plastic pine trees, though. Well, this one looks beautiful enough but I bet real pine trees smell better.

    yeah, they smell a whole lot better- than plastic! hehe. when I worked in Bukidnon before, we used a real pine tree in the office. The problem was, it turned brown after a few weeks. haha 😀
