If you’re going east side of the city, you won’t miss Barangay Baan 3’s magical offering: a Christmas fantasy corner obviously intended for passersby to ogle at and feel good.
Over the south side, in Barangay San Vicente, the huge Christmas parol (star) steals attention, and if you go as far as Barangays Anticala, Manila de Bugabos, Tungao, Cabcabon, Los Angeles and many others, in wherever corners you’d be daze, more than the fireworks of new year.
Simply put, the feeling is exhilarating.
Thanks to the Butuan City government for encouraging the lighting up “frenzy” by holding a lighting contest starting December 17 to 30.
So if I were you, hop in the car with your family and bask in the magic of the colorful night this season. (In five nights in a row, I did.)
