The year 2022 has been a great year for everyone, with life almost getting back to normal after two years since the Covid-19 pandemic brought havoc and barred us from seeing each other. With restrictions already being relaxed, Christmas will definitely be merrier this year.

Exactly 40 days before Christmas, the Lyceum of the Philippines (LPU)- Davao lighted its Christmas Tree on Tuesday evening, November 15.

This is the second time LPU-Davao staged its second face-to-face Christmas Tree lighting since the school operated in 2019.

LPU-Davao Vice President and Chief Academic Officer Dr. Felipe G. Balingit Jr., who led the event, said the tree is a "labor of love" as the lanterns hung in the tree are created by their students.

“This Christmas tree is a labor of love, all of you students contributed to this,” Balingit said.

The ceremonial lighting signifies the start of the Christmas season inside the campus, he said.

Students and other school personnel attended and performed during the lighting ceremony, bringing everyone in the community with “high spirit” as things are looking better, and hoping for a better future.
