October is Filipino American History Month!
Immerse in Filipino culture and learn how to create a parol. A parol is a Filipino ornamental lantern displayed during the Christmas season. It is a local adaptation of the Hispanic tradition of carrying small light sources during the nine-day Christmas Novena procession leading up to the midnight mass (called Simbang Gabi) in the Philippines. Expert partners from Jax Filipinos (School of Language and Culture) will guide participants in creating the parol ornament and larger completed parols will be available for purchase. Take home your own Philippine Christmas Lantern Ornament!
