Parol: Light of Christmas


Parol (pronounced as puh – rol with an emphasis on the ‘r’) is considered as a traditional Filipino Chritmas decoration, originally a five-point star Christmas lantern. To me it means, one thing: light of hope.

When I see a parol I know that somehow, somewhere there is hope.

Let this be your reminder that indeed hope can be felt and it can be found. Just believe in it!

    This is the first year since 2002 that I didn’t hang our parol. Thanks for hanging a virtual one for me.
