Please click this You Tube Video to best appreciate Zamboanga City Christmas!... and hopefully, CLICk LIKE!

Similar to 2015, this 2016 is still a Christmas for children in Zamboanga City!

"Un Mundo de Paz y Amistad" Cristiano, Muslim y Lumad...todo kita unido para el Ciudad de Zamboanga. Feliz advento del Dios Emanuel y Bondadozo Año Nuevo! -- Mayor Beng Climaco

As explained by Mayor Beng Climaco of Zamboanga City, this year’s theme of the Christmas celebration stemmed from the simple request of a little girl for a Small World Christmas

"In bringing to the City replicas of the famous landmarks from different countries and continents, the theme is a representation of the local government’s desire to promote peace, unity, and friendship amongst all people in Zamboanga City."

“The theme is our version of Un Mundo de Paz para todo los vivientes. El diferente continente y landmarks from different parts of the world showcase the message of paz, unidad, y amistad,” as quoted from our City Mayor. 

From the TV news, I also heard from the City's Chief Executive, that since we have a century-old City Hall, it is safer to have this Board type of decoration as a way to prevent fires...

Here are my night shots taken with the beautiful Christmas lights in Zamboanga City!
