PAROL workshop: traditional Philippine Christmas lantern – Philippine Generations
Join us in making traditional Christmas lanterns! This year will be our second year running and is proudly funded by Westminster Small Grants. In the Filipino language, a Christmas lantern is a ‘parol’. There is no greater symbol of the Filipino Christmas spirit than the parol, it is our Christmas tree. Throughout the Christmas season, star-shaped lanterns can be found hanging outside homes and along the streets of cities and small provincial towns, farms and fishing villages. For Filipinos, making a parol, decorating one and lighting a parol is an expression of shared faith and hope. We would like to share this beautiful art with everyone this Christmas.
