Christmas tree decorating ideas
DIY Christmas tree
If you’re tired of decorating the same old tree you’ve used every year, why not try recycling a few items from your pantry? Here is a fun and environmentally-sound concept for creating your own Christmas tree from plastic spoons.
Minimalist and rustic
Sticking with simple and neutral hues to draw more attention to the tree itself.
Wall-mounted Christmas tree
Perfect for small spaces. This is quick and easy to put up, even easier to take down and store.
The pink tree
How about a fabulous pink tree to shake things up a little this year? Gold trimmings and ornaments could provide a dramatic flair to this unique Christmas tree.
Being in a pandemic certainly isn’t on anyone’s list of ways to celebrate Christmas. Filipinos have always found ways to create lighthearted moments even in the worst of crises. These Covid-themed Christmas tree decors are fun, current and a great reminder to remain vigilant even during the holiday season.

After the government allowed the gradual re-opening of businesses in all sectors to help the economy recover amid the COVID-19 pandemic, consumers now have more buying options than online shopping. Malls and non-essential businesses have opened up again, albeit with limited workforce and hours. Despite an announcement from the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) allowing minors to enter malls, local government chiefs and medical professionals insist this is not safe and urge parents to keep their kids at home.
Divisoria, the quintessential shopping haven for bargain hunters, has seen a surge of Christmas shoppers in recent weeks as well. If you are looking for massive choices, bulk buys, rock-bottom prices and the ability to haggle for even more discounts from sellers, Divisoria is hard to beat.
However, worrying reports of overcrowding in key streets and malls in the Divisoria area prompted Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domogoso to issue an appeal to eager Christmas shoppers to observe proper protocols such as social distancing and proper wearing of protective equipment such as masks and face shields.
The Department of Health echoed the sentiment, likewise warning the public of the high risk of acquiring COVID-19 from crowded areas.

When to put up your Christmas tree
Traditionally, Christmas trees would go up on Christmas Eve and it was considered bad luck to put it up any earlier than that. This practice is no longer common, as people prefer to get into the festive spirit a lot earlier – and they’re also time poor.
If you’re really excited, we imagine you prefer to put up your Christmas tree as soon as Halloween is over and 1 November hits.
Alternatively, 1 December is also a common date to put up your Christmas tree.
When to take down your Christmas tree
Again, there are no set rules or regulations.
Generally, people tend to take down their Christmas tree sometime in early January, particularly once the New Year festivities are over.
