LOOK: Tarlac lights up with beautiful Belens

The Christmas vibe is really in the air!

In my home province, Tarlac, it has become an annual tradition to put up Belens in different spots in the province in a friendly competition called Belenismo sa Tarlac.

The Belen is a traditional Filipino Christmas symbol that shows the nativity scene. It shows the infant Jesus in the manger, surrounded by the Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, the shepherds, their flock, the Magi and some stable animals, and is surmounted by an angel, the Star or both.

Many establishments in Tarlac put up their own Belens to showcase creativity and display the Christmas spirit.

Here are photos of the Belens from Belenismo sa Tarlac Facebook page.
