Two weeks after lighting its iconic 100-ft Christmas tree, Araneta City keeps its holiday celebration alive with the traditional lighting of its giant Belen on Friday, November 11.

Located at Gen. McArthur Avenue (between Farmers Market and Farmers Garden), the City of Firsts officially lighted and opened to the public its life-size Belen — a classic Christmas icon that depicts the Nativity of Jesus Christ. It is a tradition staple in Araneta City since 1991.

The opening event was attended by Rev. Father Ronnie Santos (from Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Barangay Socorro) who led the Holy Mass. Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte, other QC LGU and Brgy Socorro officials, and Araneta City executives also took part in the said event.

“As we launch a Christmas celebration like no other in Araneta City, we want to commemorate the true meaning of the holidays. Our giant Belen serves as a remind of why we have Christmas, and helps us reflect on what truly matters this season,” Marjorie Go, AVP for Marketing of Araneta City, said.

The Belen lighting is among the much-awaited annual Christmas traditions in Araneta City. Other upcoming activities to watch out for include the opening of two classic attractions that are back in the City of Firsts this year — the Christmas on Display, and the Fiesta Carnival.
