There's no denying that we, Filipinos, have the longest Christmas Season and it starts as soon as the ber-months begin. Christmas parties here and there.Colorful decors and lighting everywhere while Christmas carols are in the air.Can you believe it?One more week to go and it's officially Christmas day! The thought of it gives most of us the mixed feelings of excitement and nostalgia. Christmas, during my childhood in my hometown (La Union), is one of the happiest and magical memories I have. I brag a lot about it to my husband because since I have been living with them in Manila for several years now, I have observedthat there is a distinguishable difference. The fast-paced life nowadays in the Metro is causing stress to a lot of us and this sucks the fun that we're supposed to feel for this Holiday Season. Personally, Christmas simply
wants me to go back to the time where it was all about Santa Claus, gifts, sumptuous meals and all that is festive.
Recently I took a trip down memory lane when I got to witness an exciting and spectacular event: the first Christmas Light Showat Lancaster New City. This show aims to bring joy and delight not just to its residents but to all children and the young-at-hear twho want to visit this place. With the theme “Santa’s Workshop,” lights on the Christmas decorated arcades dance to a medley of both classic and alternative Christmas songs. The 20-minute light show was very nostalgic in a magical way and made me feel like a child again.I actually sang and danced along the medley and couldn’t help myself not to take videos and selfies!
It's such a joy to watch these people enjoying the moment and each others company.
If you want to de-stress from the hustle and bustle of the city living without having to go far, or if you just want to feel that magical Christmas feeling again, the Christmas Light Show is for you…and your family and friends. The show started last November 28 but you can still visit on Saturdays and Sundays from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM, until 3rd of January 2016.
Just beside the Christmas Light Show area is a “banchetto and bazaar” where both the residents and guests can enjoy good food and do some Christmas shopping. The “banchetto and bazaar” is open on November 28-29, December 5-6, 12-13, 15-22, and 26-27, from 10 AM to 10 PM.
Aside from the Christmas Light Show, I got to tour around the Lancaster New City - Pro-Friends’ flagship project that spans out more than 1,400 hectares and covers of Kawit, Gen. Trias City, and Imus. It is one of a kind township development designed for the family. Every detail in the development of this project revolves around making Lancaster New City the Family Friendly City where all residents may LIVE, LEARN, WORK, PLAY, and PRAY.
LIVE : Families get to live in a safe and secure community with more indoor and outdoor spaces to bond and play. It's located 6.5 km from the Cavitex Kawit Toll Exit, making it an ideal place for families to reside.
LEARN :Children may easily walk to school, St. Edward Community Schools, that offers quality, progressive education thru project-based learning.
WORK : Residents have the option to work minutes away from home thru the PEZA-accredited SuntechiPark.
PLAY : Families may enjoy the day shopping and having dinner at the Square of Downtown Lancaster or enjoy special family celebrations at the Community Center.
PRAY : Sunday masses and other religious activities are readily available at the Church of the Holy Family.
Across the church is the Leighthon Hall where you can hold your events.
The project began in 2007 as a small project in Kawit, Cavite. Through the years, it has grownas one of the biggest township projects in Cavite.
