A month from now, we are celebrating the Yuletide season, a celebration that is well-loved by Christian communities around the world.
But in Bacolod City, we can already feel the Holidays by visiting and enjoying the Christmas Village mounted by the family of Jerry Sy located in front of his residence at 18th Lacson Street in Barangay 7.
Calling it the “Yoyo Land” which is named after his youngest son, this yearly endeavor of the family decorating their front of their house with Christmas ornaments to give joy to their fellow Bacolodnons and Negrenses
The Christmas village features the nativity scene which brought us back to the biblical period when Mary and Joseph had no place to stay to welcome the birth of their firstborn son, Jesus.
Bacolodnons and those coming from neighboring towns and cities in Negros Occidental can spend a picturesque Christmas feel at Yoyo Land Christmas Village starting 6 p.m. every night, Sy’s daughter Margrey, said.
So far, it was observed that many people have started to come to Yoyoland especially on the nativity scene, which somehow helps us reflect on the biblical history that took in the once overcrowded place in Bethlehem where Mary and Joseph never had a decent room or a place to stay to welcome the birth of Baby Jesus.
In Luke 2:7 the Bible says, “And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.”
