MERIDA – The Yucatan Government Palace dresses up with the traditional lighting of the Christmas tree and lights in the state capital. Carols, silver and red spheres, white and red lights, characters alluding to the celebrations of this time and a convivial atmosphere, preceded the lighting of the Christmas tree in the Government Palace, which marks the beginning of the holiday season in December.
Accompanied by the president of the System for the Integral Development of the Family (DIF) in the state, Sarita Blancarte de Zapata, and her sons Monserrat and Rolando, Governor Rolando Zapata Bello raised the switch that activated the tree’s lighting mechanism. Santa Claus, the snowman Olaf, Rudolph the reindeer and the Paw Patrol were in charge of making sure the children enjoyed the event.
The tree is illuminated by 120 series of red and white light bulbs, as well as 18 networks. It is ornamented with 500 red and silver spheres, 35 canes and 30 gift boxes, all made of reusable material and made in the workshops of the General Coordination of Protocolary Activities of the State Government. In the assembly and creation, more than 14 employees participated.
After illuminating the courtyard of the historic building in the heart of the Historical Center, the governor and the president of the DIF Yucatan accompanied Santa Claus for the delivery of gifts to children attending, from the sled installed next to the tree.
The decoration will remain for the enjoyment of visitors until next January 6, so during this month and the first days of the next, you can admire it from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily.
