CITY OF MALOLOS- Governor Daniel R. Fernando highlighted that Christmas must be about the birth of Jesus Christ and not focused on the decorations during the "Paskong Bulacan at Pag-iilaw ng Krismas Tree" held at the Gen. Gregorio Del Pilar Park, Antonio S. Bautista Bulacan Provincial Capitol Compound in this city last night.

"Magarbo man o payak ang pagkakaayos, ito ay sumisimbolo sa pagsilang ng ating Manunubos, ang ating Panginoong Hesukristo. Ang bituin ng Bethlehem ay nagsilbing gabay ng tatlong hari sa kanilang paglalakbay tungo sa abang sabsaban kung saan isinilang ang Panginoong Hari ng Langit. Nawa ang liwanag na ito ay magsilbing gabay sa daang patuloy nating tinatahak bilang pamilya, bilang pamayanan at bilang isang lalawigan," Fernando said.

He added that he prays that the pandemic will soon end in order to get back to the normal flow of life wherein people are free to smile, hug, and be together with their loved ones without worrying about the threat of COVID-19.

"Ito po ang unang mga pisikal na pagsasama-sama sa panahong ito na medyo nagluluwag na tayo at unti-unting bumabangon sa krisis na dulot ng pandemya. Salamat sa Diyos at magkakasama pa rin tayo patuloy na nagkakaisa upang makapagbigay ng tapat at maaasahang serbisyo sa mga mamamayan ng Bulacan," the governor said.

Lastly, he called on the Bulakenyos to continue the discipline and to deepen their prayer to the Lord.

"Marami pa tayong mga pagsubok na kakaharapin sa mga darating na panahon at iyon po ang ating kailangang paghandaan. Magpalakas tayo. Laliman natin ang panalangin at pagmamahal sa ating kapwa tao," Fernando said.

The People's Governor, together with Board Member Alexis Castro and Provincial History, Arts, Culture, and Tourism Office Head Dr. Eliseo Dela Cruz led the lighting of the 30-foot Christmas Tree which was followed by flares of fireworks in the night sky.

In addition, Hiyas ng Bulacan Brass Band entertained the audience with their Christmas pieces while Himig ng Bulakenyo with Maestro German O. De Guzman serenaded the Bulakenyos with their performance of "Kumukutikutitap" and "Simbang Gabi". ###
