Mayor cites value of celebrating Christmas

BAGUIO CITY December 20 - Mayor Mauricio G. Domogan underscored the importance of giving love, peace, joy, humility and hope in the celebration of Christmas in memory of how the Almighty Father gave up his only begotten son Jesus Christ to save the people from their sins.

The local chief executive claimed it is not only the spirit of giving that matters during the Christmas celebration but it is also the importance of reflecting on how we were able to live the way Christ lived his life on earth spreading the good deeds and words of the Father.\ "it is always easy to say the words bit it is difficult to put them to actions in our daily lives. Let us use the season to reflect on how we were able to deal with ourselves and our fellowmen," Domogan stressed.

He pointed out that it is high time for the people to use the Christmas season to ask forgiveness for whatever wrongdoings that they have done to others in the past and start a new lease in their lives in their quest to improve their moral values for them to adhere to the right way of doing tings.

According to him, there is no way for the people to live a descent life than to revitalize and enhance their spiritual values to improve the way people deal with their problems in the present times.

For his part, he admitted that he had his own mistakes in the past that he is asking for forgiveness from those who were slighted or hurt about the words that he uttered or his actions that he take in discharging his duties and responsibilities as a public servant.

Aside from the outlined virtues, he asserted that people must also learn to sacrifice for the greater interest of their fellowmen for them to be able to confront the challenges that will come their way as they try to achieve success in their chosen fields of profession in the present times.

He explained that the celebration of Christmas should not only be done during December but it should be done everyday so that people will have the greater chances of strengthening the bond that have connected them through the years because it is still best to live a life without enemies and detractors.

The city official believes that it is not only in giving and receiving that people can show their way of celebrating Christmas but it is also in the way people treat their fellowmen who are either their friends, enemies or strangers.

By doing simple deeds that will contribute in helping others in solving their problems, he emphasized that people are doing justice to their fellowmen which contribute in improving their inter-personal relationships.

He rallied the people of the city to learn to do good deeds that are not only beneficial in uplifting their own political interests but also contributing in moving the country's undisputed Summer Capital to greater heights and help sustain their good image as peace-loving individuals who want to work for the advancement of their fellowmen, especially when they are living or spending a well-deserved break in the city.

He revealed that the local government is ready for the upcoming celebration of the Yuletide season in the city but urged the public to cooperate with whatever rules and regulations that will be imposed to guarantee the peaceful and orderly celebration of the Yuletide revelry.
