Philippine survivors of one of the strongest typhoons to hit land defiantly got ready December 24, to celebrate Christmas atop their ruined communities. Haiyan's ferocious 315 kilometres (195 miles) an hour winds flattened the gritty neighbourhood on Tacloban's coast, called Magallanes, then swept up everything else with giant waves in a day of terror on November 8.
