House Committee on Local Government chairperson and Valenzuela Rep. Rex Gatchalian said seeing the lights of Tree of Hope at the Valenzuela People’s Park switched on was “truly exhilarating.”

“Seeing the Christmas Tree at the People’s Park in its lighted splendor is truly exhilarating…for two years it disappeared bec of the pandemic,” wrote Gatchalian in a social media post.

Gatchalian also posted a number of photos of the Christmas tree and lauded the “great photos” taken by the Digital communications of the Valenzuela city government/

The lawmaker said the tradition of switching on the Christmas tree has been an ongoing tradition for years until it was stopped in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Now it’s back!!! Great to see it after a 2 years hiatus,” Gatchalian said.
