Some people say that Christmas is just for kids. That when we get older, we tend to look at it more as a consumerism mafia. The glee of celebrating this global occasion seem to fade as the clock ticks to adulthood, unlike those of children’s who still believe in Santa Claus, flying reindeer, Christmas stockings, and elves . Apart from the real reason it is celebrated, the birth of Christ, another reason I personally associate with this season is giving, gratitude, and a celebration of the family. It is one of the busiest times when overseas Filipino workers (OFW) plan to come home and be with their loved ones.
With the level of enthusiasm dwindling down for me, I tried seeking for ways to revive the excitement beyond green wreathes, red poinsettias, and glittery lights. So here, I was opened to a new level of joy with the Lemax Christmas Village Collection.
Christmas in the Philippines starts on September 1. Yeah, really… so don’t be so surprised if you’d hear Christmas songs over the radio
I was excited to see the collections in Kaluxe (located at 2nd Floor of Robinson’s Forums in Pioneer, Edsa) that I wanted a whole village already. So I was able to contain myself and had it slow… For my first piece, here it is, The Olde Theatre. This is part of the Caddington Village Collection in the lighted category.
Lemax also has other themes such as Spooky Town (halloween), Harvest Crossing, Carnival, Plymouth Corners (seaside), Santa’s Wonderland (christmas), Vail Village, General Products (trees, bridges, etc.), and lot more other Christmas village collections.
There are other similar items in the market but what made me choose Lemax are basically the attention to details and quality of materials. The craftsmanship was evidently professional and done with much talent and art combined with the science of production. My friend, who has a whole lot of villages, yes a lot and I mean a LOT, so maybe we can call that a state already. How I wish that for the next years, my single house will be a village then a state too
** Lemax items are also available in SM Department stores.
