LOVE one another and be happy this festive season.
This was the message from Lautoka special administrator Praveen Bala at a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony at Vunato Park in Lautoka on Tuesday.
"We had this tree-lighting to give something to the public. Our message during the festive season is to spread love and togetherness."
Mr Bala said it was necessary for people to get together to celebrate and share the occasion which brings great meaning to life. "This is our first tree-lighting and we hope it brings joy to the Lautoka residents."
The Christmas decorations are located at the outskirts of Lautoka so that people coming into the city can be greeted by bright lights.
"Various organisations are also planning to have their prayer sessions and Christmas celebrations at the site.
"We also had a lot of people join in for our tree-lighting session and we hope for a bright festive season for Lautoka residents and prosperity for all."
