About this Site

This site evolved from the original Parol: Christmas Lanterns of the Philippines website site built in 1999 by Denise C. Nacu. The site quickly attracted both students and educators, Filipinos, Filipino-Americans, and Filipinos living all over the world who wanted to know more about the parol, parol-making, and the appreciation of the traditional craft.

After years of successful operation, it became apparent that the site needed to be updated, expanded and redesigned to include various cultural, educational and commercial concepts that relate to Filipino culture. Particularly, parol-making is a tradition that we can inculcate to youngsters who are geographically distant from the Philippines by providing the necessary materials; hence, in response to the many requests for parol-making materials and instructions, we offered the Parol Kits for sale. The site also includes detailed instructions and other educational materials.

Filipinos all over the world celebrate special occasions such as Christmas, with music and food. All the contents of this website is dedicated to the Glory of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
