4 Spots in The Metro to Marvel at Fireworks

The spirit of Christmas and New Year is felt in every corner of Metro Manila. Actually it started a couple of months back when September ushered in what we call the "ber" months. Never mind that there is still Halloween long before the Yuletide season. Welcome to the country with the longest Christmas and New Year Season in the world. 

Colorful parols, sparkling Christmas lights, joyous Carols and non stop reunions and parties are happening left and right. Truly, the most wonderful time of the year is here!

Of course, Christmas especially New Year is synonymous with spectacular fireworks. Who would not want to see this pyrotechnic effects bathe the night sky with beautiful kaleidoscopic shapes in different hues. It is magical!  

Some consider it a tradition to buy their own fireworks to blast away whatever bad luck they experienced the previous year and to herald good fortune for the coming year. Some choose to shell out a considerable sum to buy tickets just to enjoy an actual competition from different countries in the world. Others would just chill in the safety of their own home to watch the fireworks-lit sky.

However, if you are one of those who would like a change of scenery for the season while keeping your fingers and limbs intact, these places will come in handy.
