The Christmas season becomes the brightest season in the Philippines because of the well-lighted and decorated roads, establishments, and homes. Christmas lights are standard Christmas decorations in every home. In fact, Christmas lights shaped as a star or a Christmas tree are common sights in the country this time of year.
The Manila Electric Company (Meralco) also "lighted up" their Meralco compound for the holiday season. The company has opened its Meralco Liwanag Park last November 25, 2011 with no other than Miss Universe 2011 3rd runner-up and Meralco Ambassador of Light, Miss Shamcey Supsup, gracing the event.
Aside from the expected lighted attractions, Meralco has prepared a light show, a Christmas village, a night bazaar, and electric rides to its visitors. There's no entrance fee to visit the Meralco Liwanag Park but the company asks only a simple favor from its visitors and customers.
Begun in 2006, Meralco's Maliwanag and Pasko campaign serves as one of Meralco's channels for supporting various charities. This year, in line with the theme of love and light, the company's One Meralco Foundation supports at least 1,000 Filipino children's schooling. The company is asking for the public's support by just lighting up their homes with Christmas lights this holiday season. How easy is that?
