Ever had a neighbor who always had the best lights and seasonal decor (which made you not want to dress up your house both to protest the extravagance and to avoid electrical overload blackouts)? In a gated subdivision in the suburbs of Metro Manila, one such place takes holiday displays to a whole new rainbow-colored level.
The Cruz family’s Cainta Christmas House draws hundreds of visitors every day and night with its floor-to-ceiling lights and numerous selfie spots. Visitors can enter the gates of the mansion to view the garage and garden, which are filled with oversized stuffed toys and millions of tiny bulbs, or to ogle at the elegant interiors through the glass walls. For a residence, this is about as hallucinogenic as Yule ever be.
