Rex Gatchalian ain’t jazzing up Valenzuela parks with Christmas decor this year


Rex Gatchalian is keeping this year’s Christmas decorations low key.

The Valenzuela mayor explained why local parks remain plain and dim barely a month from Christmas, when it would have otherwise been brightened up by stunning lights and decor by now.

“Sa mga nagtatanong bakit wala pa din ang mga Christmas Trees and decorations sa mga Parks natin na taon taon natin nilalagay. This year we will not put them up. We have to make sure that we do not encourage convergence of people that will cause more covid transmission,” the politiko said.

“We want to prioritize our COVID response spending –– testing, tracing and treatment,” he added.
