The Christmas tree and lantern displays at the Kalayaan Grounds in Malacanang were a surprise for families visiting the city on Wednesday.

The President dropped by unexpectedly while on his route to a meeting with representatives of Radio and Television Malacanang (RTVM).

The President arrived in the area at about 8 o’clock and amiably shook hands and posed for photos with the Malacanang guests who had traveled from adjacent cities and as far away as the provinces of Cavite and Laguna.

Children were attempting to get close while fans yelled the President’s name as he shook their hands and said, “Merry Christmas,” as everyone was incredibly excited.

A tourist from Muntinlupa City named Ben Aguilar expressed surprise at seeing the CEO in person.

I’m really delighted that the Palace is open to the public and that this is also the case given that the Tao is the leader of the abbot-kamay people. The fact that the people look up to a leader who is approachable is very entertaining, too,” Aguilar remarked.

Up until December 24, anyone can visit the Malacanang Palace Grounds to see the Christmas tree and parols (lanterns) and to join the Simbang Gabi or dawn mass.

The President wants to ensure that all Filipino children, particularly those living nearby, experience a happy and meaningful Christmas, which is why Malacanang was opened.

The President mandated the opening of the Palace grounds to the public from December 18 through December 24, from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following day, as part of the festival known as “Tara sa Palasyo.”

The public can observe the Christmas displays during the customary Simbang Gabi.

At least 2,116 people visited the Christmas displays and the Simbang Gabi, which is held every 4:30 a.m. in front of the Mabini Hall, from Tuesday night until 4 a.m. on Wednesday.

Visitors to Malacanang can access Gate 6 to reach the Palace grounds.
