|The Christmas tree at dusk. No guests yet.|
|The Opening Prayers.|
Before the tree lighting, there's an opening prayer by representatives of 6 Religious organizations and groups, after which choirs from many of the local schools and churches sing. Even some white robed priests and other seculars did a fun song in Tagalog to a hip beat, although no Michael Jacksons, it was fun to watch them in their adorable semi-self consious dance stances. You know, if you looked closely, you could tell they were having a good time and getting into it.
