It’s the time of year where Cebuanos start prepping up their homes, lighting up the Christmas trees, and hanging their lanterns. However, some of us tend to get halfhearted in decorating our homes due to financial reasons. I, for instance, would rather spend my money on the Noche Buena than spend them just for pricey decorations.
