Christmas Day is fast approaching and everybody is busily preparing to celebrate one of the biggest feasts of Christianity. Everywhere you go, it is impossible to miss reminders of the fast approaching holiday season — homes, schools, offices, shopping malls, government buildings are all awash in Christmas decorations.
One of the notable highlights of the holiday season is the traditional exchange (and giving) of gifts. In the Philippines, the celebration of the holiday season is marked by Christmas sales in various malls. To entice more people to visit their malls (and generate sales), shopping centers and malls come up with various sales promotions and put up unique themes depicting the holiday season for the enjoyment of mall-goers — adults and children alike.
