Christmas season in the Philippines is never complete without the yuletide display. In year 2015 a partnership with CCP and Omni was formed to support the annual nativity event of San Fernando craftsmen entitled “Parul Sampernandu”. The objective of the partnership is to promote energy conservation by using new technology in lighting and to introduce the use of LED to local craftsmen. The project also became a part of the beautification of CCP Complex for APEC as mandated by APEC National Organizing Committee. Along with the San Fernando lanterns, a giant Christmas Tree was created to light up Liwasang Asean.
