Friday Photo 123

This tree was sighted at Crimson Hotel in Alabang, where I attended a work-related meeting last week. True to the hotel’s name, it was decked in blood red trimmings with white (silver) and some gold thrown in to provide stark contrast. I christen this tree A Bloody Merry Christmas Tree.

This is Coppertonic, our svelte Christmas tree at home. This year I decided on orange as the motif to our Christmas decorations. And because many Christmas tree trimmings are metallic, Copper became the dominant color of our Christmas tree, off-set by a bit of silver here and there.


Even our miniature Christmas tree got into it. Here’s a bonus pic. I call him Lil’ Copper.

This is Merry, the Christmas tree in a small hotel where I attended a workshop early this week. It’s a fairly common-looking tree sporting common-looking trimmings–hence the common name. She makes up for her unremarkable trimmings with a profusion of LED fairy lights that light up the lobby at night.

This is Robinsons Place Manila’s giant of a Christmas tree. I call this oneĀ Agatona (after that komiks character) because what she lacks in beauty she makes up for in height and girth.

This gold-trimmed giant of a tree was sighted at SM Aura Premier early this week. I’d call this a Fractal Christmas tree because it has no symmetry and seems to just go on and on.
