|Christmas at Mana Davao|
Mana Davao or Mana Casa de Artes y Antiguas is one of the most anticipated, most flocked, and a must-see Christmas attraction in the city of Davao. Every year at Christmas, thousands of artistically crafted lights in gigantic Christmas Trees and red Christmas Houses into an ever-changing theme and design each year are on a massive glittering display at their shop's facade from dusk 'til midnight which draws thousands of Dabawenyos, foreign and domestic tourists alike, oftentimes happily causing a little traffic as passersby, cars, jeepneys, and other vehicles halt or slow down to take even a sneak peek and appreciate at this uniquely wonderful sight every night. There are also mascots of different cartoon characters that would entertain visitors.
Basking in those enormous sea of lights, Mana Davao has in some ways brought magical cheer and spirit of Christmas in every one's heart. The compound has become somewhat of a "mini park" call it as you will, where a large crowd of families with kids, groups of friends, colleagues from the office, and shutterbugs queue excitedly every night like little moths to a flame to have their souvenir photos taken before the massive display of Christmas lights and decors.
Admission is FREE and everyone is welcome to visit.
