Christmas in Crosswinds: The Happiest Time of Year!

 

‘Tis the season to be jolly . . . and safe. 

The pandemic is not yet over but Christmas will never be suspended. Last year’s Christmas is quite different from all Christmases that we’ve experienced due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but it never stopped people to celebrate the most awaited occasion of the year, Christmas.

Time and situation now are more manageable than last year. People are now more familiar with the guidelines and restrictions. Children are now even allowed to go out of their houses and even visit malls. Face shields are no longer required in some areas and locations. Businesses are already adjusting and keeping up with their losses. Are we really close to the pandemic being over? We are not sure of that so mindfulness and being careful is still advised after all. Being extra careful is still better than being sorry.

After almost two years of staying at home, it is as if Filipinos’ belts were loosened up after travel restrictions were lifted and lowered to a more controllable circumstance. Many are traveling by land and air even just in the inbound Philippines to relax and be refreshed from the stress of the pandemic. The local beaches are jampacked. Staycations to luxury real estate became trending. Filipinos find ways to be more creative especially since going out is no longer a taboo. Christmas time will be quite more exciting to celebrate because of these changes, and this for sure is one of the many ways Christmas will be celebrated- through traveling. 

May it be inbound or international travel, Filipinos just love to travel and commune with nature. There is something about seeing greens, being surrounded by crystal blue waters, and breathing fresh air that makes our spirit more alive. For local leisure, Tagaytay will never be out of the list and might be on top of your record. Being easily accessible for Metro Manila citizens, a two-hour drive or less, Tagaytay has always been a go-to place to relax and unwind. 

This year another best way to engage and spend the holiday is to celebrate Christmas in Crosswinds, Tagaytay. 

A Unique Christmas in Crosswinds

To date, based on the Department of Tourism with the help of IATF Guidelines, Tagaytay in Cavite is basically in Alert Level 2 as shared by the Philippines Safe Travel website. Meaning all accommodations and establishments accredited by DOT is now on full-on capacity, but to be safer 50% capacity for indoors and 70% for outdoors is still advised. To have hassle-free travel, it is best to check on your destination’s travel requirements prior to checking in. In this way, you will know if you need to undergo an RT-PCR/ antigen test or just a show of your vaccination card. 

As Christmas is fast approaching, people are becoming busier preparing a list of what to buy and what to do. Since this coming Christmas is still not the same as the pre-pandemic era, Filipinos will surely create special ways to celebrate this time of the year. 

Celebrating at home is still the best for most people to be safe, but to some who need to feed their sanity, checking in to luxury real estate condominium-like spaces will help them celebrate better than last year. Seeing different views apart from their computers and corners of the house is refreshing.
