It’s All In The Head: A One-of-a Kind Christmas Party

December 23, 2014. One day before the start of the Christmas break (for most agencies and private entities, that is), PHLPost-6 Administrative Center, together with Iloilo City Post Office, celebrated its Christmas Party in style. PHLPost 6 officers and staff gamely came in headpieces in all shapes, sizes and colors, transforming themselves into male and female versions of Santa Clause, Disney characters, heroes and heroines, elegant fairy princesses, mythical gods and goddesses, or elegant men and women of royal blood. What a dazzling sight, indeed!
Lending more fun to the event were the Talent Show, PHLPost’s version of Pera or Bayong, and Battle of the Tuneless which showcased the tuneless singing of 5 overconfident ladies and gentlemen.

But amidst all the excitement, AD Fabiolita Ferraris, in her Christmas message, reminded everyone that “Christmas is not just about parties, merrymaking or bonuses, but it is about receiving Jesus in our hearts and sharing him with others.” She hoped that everyone would learn a lot from the beautiful story of Christmas, and be thankful always from small blessings.

Door prizes were randomly given that night, and though not all got lucky to receive a prize, everyone came home with a box full of happy memories. The event, coordinated by the vivacious Ms. Georgette Vee (Ms. Santa Claus that night), was truly one of its kind in PHLPost Area 6.
