(SPOT.ph) It's no secret that Christmas festivities in the Philippines start as soon as the -ber months hit. Malls and hotels start lighting up their Christmas trees, roads are lined with parols, and homes are decorated with lots of lights. And after two virtual celebrations amid the pandemic, Ayala Triangle Gardens' annual Festival of Lights finally returned with a live and on-ground launch event tonight, November 10, at 6 p.m. The show runs daily from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. until January 8, 2023.

Everything You Need to Know about the Ayala Triangle Gardens' Festival of Lights 2022

Festival of Lights 2022, which is made possible in partnership with Kroma and Acid House, starts with a video projected on the canopy façade. Titled The Christmas Lights Factory, it serves as a transition from the virtual editions of the Festival of Lights into the much-awaited IRL display. The introduction video portrays Santa's elves working extra hard to make the Christmas lights machine work. And when it finally does, light elements in various shapes, colors, and sizes emerge from the machine. The elves pick these up and transport them onto the rows of trees at the Ayala Triangle Gardens. The dramatic clip ends with Santa Claus turning on a switch to signal the start of the actual lights show.

During the lights show, visuals projected on the trees move slowly to form colorful indigenous patterns. The screen later reveals other Christmas elements we're familiar with, including parols, halos, and stars. All the patterns and elements eventually end with an explosion of colors. This grand presentation is accompanied by three holiday medleys: an orchestra rendition by the Manila Symphony Orchestra; some upbeat music worthy of a Tiktok reel by Tris Suguitan, Jazz Nicolas, and Mikey Amistoso; and a chorale rendition by Nicolas and Amistoso.
