UPLB turns the lights on with its amazing Christmas ornaments

Christmas is really in the air in UPLB.

The University has just lit its giant Christmas tree, a life-size nativity scene, and a Christmas décor- bedecked train and train station.

“Pasko sa ELBI: fiesta in December,” as the entire installation is called, also features a mini bazaar at the parking lot of the University Housing Office.

Already an annual treat for the community, the lighting celebration on the evening of Nov. 26 attracted droves who, armed by their smartphones, immediately took photos of various scenes with the various Christmas scenes as their background.

Taking the spotlight in this year’s Christmas installation is a 19th century-model train that was the College of Arts and Sciences’ winning entry in the Centennial Loyalty Day float parade on Oct. 10, but recycled, refurbished, and repainted in red.

The 80-feet tall Christmas tree equally demands attention as it glows and shimmers with colorful lights against the night sky.
