 The parol which is usually designed as a star, reminiscent of the Star of Bethlehem, is perhaps the most popular symbol of our Filipino Christmas tradition. It calls to mind the search of the wise men in the Gospel of Matthew "Where is he who is born King of the Jews? For we saw his star in the east, and have come to worship him." (2:2)." as stated by Bishop Soc Villegas
