Merry Christmas from Myeongdong Cathedral!
Just like its neighboring shopping center, the Myeongdong Cathedral in Seoul, South Korea, also bathed itself with lights and decorations to celebrate Christmas.
This Cathedral is the center of the Roman Catholic faith in South Korea. So, it's just proper to welcome all the faithful visiting the church with bright and unique tree lights from the base of the stairs up to the Cathedral.
(If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, the road to Heaven is paved with good...illuminations!)
I was there to visit the Cathedral a few nights before I left for the warmer temperatures of the Philippines, and was mesmerized, along with a few others, by the unique lights installed around the Cathedral grounds.
And even the tree next to the Catherdral, where I spotted a couple posing for a photo a month ago during autumn, has become a favorite among the visitors as it was converted into a tree of lights, so unique that it even looks better than having yellow leaves covering its branches.
And if you go behind the Cathedral, even the garden surrounding the Blessed Virgin Mary is littered with lights that guard the Lady during these chilly winter nights.
So, if you're in Seoul, do drop by the Cathedral grounds at night and be fascinated by the unique lights.
Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!
