For someone who is living in Pasig,Meralco’s Paskuhan Village and Nativity Belenis hard not to miss. The Nativity Belen made out of recycled copper wire is just amazing. And for someone who has been living in Pasig, every Christmas, we had a feast of lights, color and hope. For some reason, we never had a chance to get up close and personal to the said attraction. But this year, it was a different story. I had a privilege not just to be up close and personal but to witness the grand lighting ceremony of the said display.
Meralco Maliwanag Ang Paskotheme for this year is UNITY or PAGKAKAISA. Aside from the traditional giant replica of theNativity Belenand Meralco’s Paskuhan Village, Meralco Ortigas Compound offers a ride on its life size electric toy train around the candy colored Toy Town with a life size (robot size) Robot on the side. The grand lighting ceremony also gives way to the introduction of Meralco Bolts as Christmas Goodwill Ambassadors.
And once again, Meralco invite their costumers to unite and brighten up their homes and spread Christmas cheers to their community.

Oh I love this display the most. In fact, I thought it was a real Meralco man doing some repairs before the Ceremony.
