Merry Christmas from the Philippines!
The Philippines celebrates the longest Christmas season in the world starting from September (-ber months) until January (Feast of the Three Kings). It just briefly pause to make way for Halloween, All Saint’s Day and All Soul’s Day. Crazy!…I know.
But, there’s a place just 30 minutes away from Metro Manila that feels like Christmas all year round, it’s called – Casa Santa which is located in Antipolo City (full address below). It is a house full of Santa Claus collection. In fact, it is one of the most extensive private collection of Santa Claus items in the world. It contains over 3,000 Santas in every imaginable size and configuration. It has been featured several times by local and international media.
The place is perfect for photo-ops. We went there with my 4 month old cute little nephew and had fun posing for pictures, exploring the Santa collections and wearing Santa costumes.
