25 Feet Tall Antipolo Christmas Tree

An early Merry Christmas is celebrated in Antipolo City. A 25 feet tall christmas tree were lighted by the Hon. Mayor Jun Ynares III last November 4, 2014 to start the Christmas Celebration in Antipolo City.

Simultaneously, other municipalities of Rizal Province also lighted their own christmas trees.

After switching the lights of the christmas tree, a surprising and spectacular fireworks display were also held and the crowd got even happier.

“Ang liwanag ay simbolo ng pagasa, sa hirap ng buhay, kahit papano ang ganitong simpleng selebrasyon ay nakapagdudulot ng saya sa aming mga kababayan… kaya, isang paraan ng pagbati sa kanila ng Merry Christmas!” — Mayor Jun Ynares III

Translation: “Light symbolizes hope, through hardness of life, in little ways, simple celebration like this gives happiness to our fellow-citizens… this is a way of greeting them a Merry Christmas!” — Mayor Jun Ynares III
