Ayala Triangle’s Christmas Lights & Sound Display 2011
All the stars in the universe fell and landed at the heart of the business district.
From my not so busy schedule, I took a quick break and had a stroll back in the big city. The spirit of Christmas embraced Ayala Avenue where Christmas displays lit the city with lights and lanterns which hung from trees and lamp posts. Eye catching designs curtained buildings, stores, and establishments. Everyone had their own gimmicks and surprises which enthralled all passers by and spectators.All those lights and displays along the road were only appetizers for the main course prepared by Ayala for everybody. A giant display of the Nativity welcomed people as they enter Makati Stock Exchange towards Ayala Triangle Garden. Everyone attended to their agendas. Some walked around admiring the lights, others sat down by the grass, some were having dinner in restaurants, and others were just there plainly to kill time but not until all the lights slowly dimmed and silence spread out like wildfire in a dry land.

A soft familiar melody started to play. Inflatable stars on trees were lit and started to bloom like a rose opening its petals. I was STUNNED. To my amazement, my jaw dropped wide open and the Christmas spirit entered my mouth and flowed through my veins, I was so pumped for Christmas. And that was just the beginning.
Different hues of light enjoyed by children, adults, couples, and families hanging out in Ayala Triangle Garden.
Lights danced and flickered in tune with the music, and just at it seems the show was about to reach the climax, there’s always another explosion of lighting technique bedazzling the viewers once again. While people were watching the display, I looked around and saw smiles on everybody’s faces. A smile of content, satisfaction, love, and the spirit of Christmas.

Christmas lights lit the whole park.
Those 30 minute exhibit of lighting techniques and musical arrangements may just be another tourist attraction for the visitors, but I’m pretty sure those 30 minutes may have change one’s persons view of what the Christmas season really means. It’s not about who has the more lights and the louder music, but for me, it’s all about feeling the joy, love, and the feeling of content where you appreciate everything especially the small things around you, especially if its free of charge. From that tiny vantage point, one can see the real beauty this world has to offer.
