BACOLOD CITY - Inmates of the district jail here are getting in on the holiday spirit by making Christmas lanterns.

The lanterns will be sold outside the city police office compound starting in November. Proceeds from the sale will be used to fund a holiday party for the inmates party and set up a medicine fund.

Orders have started coming and personalized designs, where names can be printed on the lanterns, are among the most popular, said inmate Andrew Ledesma.
