With fresh COVID-19 cases and transmission rates going down in the country, Filipinos may look forward to a merrier Christmas this year compared to the previous one.

With the drop in cases comes the easing of quarantine restrictions, allowing for more businesses to open, something many Filipinos undoubtedly look forward to after being cooped up at home for almost two years as a precaution against the pandemic.

With talks of Metro Manila shifting to the lowest alert level soon, several malls and parks have lit up Christmas displays, conspicuously absent at the height of the pandemic, for people to enjoy. 

Here are some displays around the metro.
