My Top 6 Hotels to Celebrate Christmas in the Metro

My favorite season comes near... exactly 16 days to go before Christmas! Are you all excited to spend Christmas with family or friends? Aside from decorating our house with Christmas ornaments and shopping for some new clothes for the family. I know some of you are preparing or at least have an idea on where to celebrate Christmas. 
Whether Christmas is celebrated the simplest or grandiose way the thought of giving and sharing should always be the main the goal, on why we take time to be with our loved ones. 

The traditional way of celebrating Christmas that we all grew up with is we visit our old folks in the province and be with the whole kin. Filipinos are known for having and spending this time of season with our extended family where we all cook our favorite dishes, or each family are assigned to bring their delicious cooked meals for everyone to share.

In a more modern way a family can result to hotel's where everything for Christmas celebration are being offered. This might be a little pricey that the traditional way but this can spare you with all the time of everything. Time can be spend more catching up with the family.
Here is a list of my research of top 6 hotels to celebrate Christmas in the Metro.
