Karisyohan Han Pasko Ha Palo
Palo, Leyte

The town of Palo, which is the religious center of Eastern Visayas, is transformed into a veritable "Christmas Village" wherein the whole community participate in the beautiful Filipino traditions of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ.

In 1989, Enrico M. Saboren, a tenor based in California, started to decorate their family ancestral house with artistic Christmas decors from abroad.  This "House of Fantasy" fascinated people from all of walks of life who make it a point to visit Palo to enjoy the unique sights.

As part of its annual entertainment, comunity competitions like best decorated barangay, best belen, best parol (lantern), old traditions of pastores and Christmas carol singing, drum and bugle corps and other festivities make Christmas in Palo truly enjoyable, its real meaning understood and its cultural value enhanced.
