- CHRISTMAS CAPITAL SYMBOLS – Tangub City’s landscape is again spruced up for the Christmas season. Newly installed posts on the main street leading to the city hall and around the children’s park bear lanterns which are no longer made of indigenous materials. A row of arches with Christmas inspired filigree now stand at the city plaza giving one the feeling that he walks under an ornate passageway. The Christmas festival became incorporated in the Ten Year Development Plan and thus institutionalized. Offices both local and national were clustered to put up Christmas symbols, highway and interior barangays decided to put up decorative arches, and highland barangays signified their participation by putting up parols at St. Michael’s parish plaza.
