MANILA -- Araneta Center welcomed the Christmas season Friday with the grand return of the traditional Christmas on Display (COD) display at the Times Square Food Park.

Created by Alex Rosario Sr. in 1957, the moving display has become a prominent attraction during Christmas until the Manila C.O.D. Department Store ceased operations in 2002.

With its return, the COD display will continue to amaze with its imposing design and touching stories, combining the old and the new.

Here are some photos from the COD's star-studded launch.
