Christmas is not just a time to buy and receive material gifts—it is also a time for remembering that during the First Christmas, Baby Jesus was born on a manger, devoid of extravagance, expensive gifts and material wealth. This was the message imparted during the annual Christmas program held on December 19, 2008. Dubbed, ―The ILLC Christmas Story,‖ this year‘s program showcased talents of ILLC students. Ina Mesina, AC Alvaran and Jhona Nisperos acted as the main actresses in the play written and directed by Teachers Nina Almeda and Shary Espiritu. Class E‘s Parol bagged the Best Christmas Class Parol. Hand-made by the students, the parol was covered with bottle labels while its tail was composed of Christmas balls made of sinamay thread. In line with the Christmas tradition, there was also an exchange of gifts among students. Sumptuous food from Abelardo‘s and KFC was served for lunch, completing the gaiety of the Christmas celebration.
