It was 2 weekends ago when we bought one of the Capiz Christmas lanterns being sold at the streets near our house. The lanterns are made out of capiz shells and added with bright and colorful lights that are twinkling in sequence.
There are actually lots of different sizes to choose from and aside from lanterns shaped Santa Claus, candle, coconut tree with lights are also sold. Capiz lantern prices ranges from 1,000- 5,000. We bought ours for Php1,200 and is now hanging at our garage and we lit it every night.
Christmas here in the Philippines is not complete without lanterns (can be made out of paper, plastic, capiz, wires etc), this year we wanted to have a different lantern at home so we bought a capiz one eventhough it's a bit pricey.
