The country’s tallest Christmas tree may be standing at the Tagum City hall, some 53 kilometers north of here.

City officials who witnessed the lighting of the 182-feet high tree on November 18 described the event and the tree, fun, vibrant and colorful.

The city information office said the Christmas tree is draped with 232,400 rice bulbs and rope lights and other decorations, “pertaining to the recognitions harvested by the city, and some icons of the mega infrastructure projects of the local government this year.”

Ten layers constitute this Christmas tree representing “the developmental thrusts” of the local government that it dubbed as “Eagle Wings.”

Atop the tree is a 12-foot star. Wrapping the tree are 23 smaller stars, representing the 23 barangays of the capital city of Davao del Norte.

Tagum City residents flocked to the City Hall grounds on that Sunday evening as annual lighting spectacle also kicked off monthlong Paskuhan sa Tagum festivities.

Mayor Allan L. Rellon said the city “has plenty of reasons to be thankful for, on top of the successes of the individual families of Tagumenyos.”

“As we gaze at the beautiful lights of this year’s giant Christmas tree, may we be reminded of the goodness of our Lord Who makes all things perfect in His appointed time,” he said.

Bishop Medil Aseo of the Catholic Diocese of Tagum led the blessing ceremony and emphasized “the importance of the birth of Jesus Christ, as symbolized by the lights of the giant structure.”

The city also decorated with Christmas lights foxtail palm trees that line the avenue leading to the City Hall. Tagum, likewise, tilled the city hall’s front yard to create a Sunflower Garden accentuated with a miniature castle.

The giant Christmas tree would be lit every 6 p.m. until midnight every day until January next year.
