Spirits low for Christmas in the Philippines

As the world celebrates Christmas, Filipinos are busy still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan.

    Christmas is usually a day of festivities in the mostly Catholic nation.

    But this year's celebrations are sombre.

    The country is still recovering from Typhoon Haiyan, which devastated towns in November.
