The most wonderful time of the year that we’ve all been waiting for is just around the corner! To make the seasons merry and bright, the whole stretch of Ayala Avenue, Paseo de Roxas, and Makati Avenue are decorated with beautiful Christmas lights to chime in the Christmas season. This is the largest display of Christmas lights in the city and a well-loved Makati tradition that has brought the community together. This year’s bright and energy efficient lights are courtesy of Firefly Lighting Corporation.
This year’s lights are inspired by beautiful and local hand woven fabrics from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Paying tribute to the cultural heritage of the Philippines, each Christmas decoration has not only bright colorful lights but also intricate Filipino patterns, such as: Inabel and Burdado from Luzon, Banig Tikog from Visayas, T’Boli, Ukil and Yakan weaves from Mindanao.

Makati Christmas street lights continue to brighten up the busy business district to usher in the warmth and light of Christmas to all who work, live or are visiting the city. As the lights come alive every night, you won’t miss the beautiful lights along the street this whole festive season. So make a point to go out to the streets or look outside the window to catch a glimpse of the seasonal Christmas lights!
The official opening of the lights ceremony happened on November 3, 2017 at the Ayala Triangle.
