BMX riders at the Balyuan Giant Christmas Tree Park
So this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun
Ans so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear one
The old and the young
From “Happy Christmas (War is Over)” by John Lennon
It’s beginning to look a bit like Christmastime in Tacloban City with its 54-foot tall Christmas Tree all lit up at the Balyuan Complex and promenaders and BMX bike riders all taking it in.
The scene last night, December 15, 2010 with local BMX enthusiasts strutting their stuff on a very humid, early evening by the bay of Cancabato.
Standing 53 feet tall at the Balyuan Complex facing the Cancabato Bay is this year’s “European–Moroccan-inspired” huge Christmas tree erected by the Tacloban City government.
