2019 Christmas Display At Jerry Sy – Stonehill suites.
Every year, Jerry sy’s Christmas Display becomes more and more interactive. This year marks the first appearance of a second floor where people can now climb up and take selfies with the beautiful Display and the lights. For safety reasons, the number of people allowed on top is limited .
There’s several parts to this display. A new addition is an archway over the main entrance to the display . It proudly declares “Yoyoland” . There are several vendors around this area so its good to eat before going to the display.
Making a new appearance are these nutcracker soldiers who replaced the two mechanical soldiers as main sentries. Not to worry as those two sentries who we fondly named Ralf and Rudolph have been promoted and are now up top on the second floor.
Mr . Claus is still holding court but it’s sad to see the disappearance of the portrait of Mr. Sy(?) as a young lad. Apparently Santa feels the need for an electric fan because the fireplace has gotten too hot.
The belen is back but the robes of the wise men and the holy family have been replaced by shinier fabric. Gone are the gorgeous silks and patterns but all things considering, it is for the best as those old robes were hardly weather proof!
Making a new appearance is a family of emperor penguins . As of writing the foam machine has not yet made an appearance.
The second floor has a great view. Don’t drop your cellphone!
Santa and his reindeer fly overhead.
The best things in life are free
Check out the amazing Christmas Display at Jerry Sy’s!
Each year the display seems to be bigger and better than before. This year (2017) the display now spans from Jerry Sy’s house to over and across the street.
This display brings back fond memories of watching the animatronic display back in the 80’s at the old China Rose near the Bacolod Public Plaza
Jerry Sy’s Christmas display now has foam bubbles! The foam gives the appearance of snow! It looks absolutely fantastic! The kids love chasing the bubbles.
This year the decorations look even more fantastic. There’s now a Christmas room where Santa sits in an oversize chair. A grandfather clock sits beside him while a paper fire burns merrily in a fireplace. Across from Santa is a well-decorated Christmas Tree.
Above the fireplace is Jerry Sy’s (?) childhood photo. (not sure). The attention to detail is quite amazing. There’s even an electric fan (lol).
The Ferris wheel even has a cutout where people can pose for a souvenir photo!
This year’s Christmas display looks even better than the ones before it. There’s finer craftsmanship and there’s a very festive atmosphere. Despite all the new and exciting stuff, We’re glad the gorgeous nativity scene or belen is still there because JESUS is the REASON for the SEASON – it’s his birthday!
Suggestion to Jerry Sy! On December 25th please have a real santa claus sit in this chair and hand out candies, gifts etc!
The best part of all this is that – It’s all FREE! There’s no charge to come and enjoy the amazing Christmas Exhibit! Bring your friends, relatives to see something that is uniquely Bacolod!
