UP Diliman Lights Up Christmas With ‘Pag-iilaw 2022’

The University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman held its traditional Pag-iilaw 2022 to ring in the holiday season with a colorful light show and music-filled night, according to Raffy Tima’s 24 Oras report on Friday.

With the theme “Bagong Tahak, Bagong Galak,” this year’s lighting ceremony symbolizes triumphs amidst the challenges faced by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past two years.

The lighting ceremony featured the plant “katakataka” or miracle plant found on the stone pedestal holding the offering.

It symbolizes the resilience of the UP Diliman community in the midst of all challenges.

Areas of the university including Quezon Hall, Oblation and Academic Oval were filled with lights for visitors to enjoy on campus. — Richa Noriega/LDF, GMA Integrated News
