Only in the Philippines: Volkswagen Christmas tree and other unique decor

MANILA, Philippines - A unique Christmas tree is drawing much attention in the province of Albay this year.

A Volkswagen Beetle parked on Maharlika Highway in Ligao has become a Christmas tree.

Residents used Christmas lights to decorate the vintage car, which still runs and will be driven by its owner after the New Year.

Elsewhere in the country, Filipinos are showing their creativity in putting up their holiday decor.

In Negros Oriental, residents and visitors have been admiring a Christmas village display which has a belen made of sinamay, papier-mache and coconut. Banana leaves and abaca were also used to spruce it up.

In Bais City, a Christmas tree bedecked with Christmas lights that change in color is made unique with a fireworks display.

And in Dumaguete City, the Absin family has chosen the Wizard of Oz theme for their Christmas decor.

In Palo, Leyte, visitors to a Christmas village are amused at a dancing Santa Claus greeting them.

And in Iligan City, both the young and old are flocking to Candy Wonderland filled with candy houses, Christmas trees, and lanterns
