As more of the population gets vaccinated, Cebu City Vice Mayor Michael Rama expects a “better” observance of the Kalag-Kalag and celebration of the Christmas season this year.

Last year, the city government closed cemeteries during the All Saints’ and All Souls’ Days and urged a simple yet meaningful Christmas celebration.

“We are bringing vaccination as a way to liberation,” said Rama. (

The vice mayor said he will bring up the matter with the executive department after talking with the Philippine National Police.

“I will discuss it with the executive and I already talked about it with the police. We can have or we enjoy and celebrate November 1 and 2,” he added.

Rama said he plans to open the cemeteries to the public this year and extend the traditional two-day observance to two weeks.

The official also encouraged church leaders to do their part in promoting vaccination among the faithful.
