2015 Christmas

Christmas in Lae quiet

The message was similar at churches. Jesus was the ultimate gift from God to save mankind. At Holy Spirit Parish, a Christmas vigil mess was held last night.

Parish Priest, Father Apol reminded parishioners that we are the reason for Christ’s birth, as he died later.

Meanwhile, most shops throughout the city welcomed eager shoppers for last minute shopping for Christmas gifts and food.

Christmas period quiet in NCD

NCD Central Commander Sylvester Kalaut says the city has had no major reported incidences, while he further commended the community to keep up the positive atmosphere through to the New Year period.

Kalaut says however, that there have been numerous driving charges given out to motorists who were arrested for drink-driving around the city.

He is calling for people to be mindful of driving laws and refrain from driving under the influence of alcohol to ensure accidents are avoided during this festive period.

Wet Christmas for City residents

It was a wet Christmas for last minute shoppers and it was unfortunate for those who planned an outing with family and friends.

The weather office has reported that it will be partly cloudy with light southwest winds, 10-15 knots and morning showers.

Weather man Jimmy Gomoga confirmed earlier that the weather during the festive period 24-26 Dec and 30 Dec 2015 - 02 Jan 2016 would mostly be fine.

So those planning a Christmas outdoor event tonight can rest assure that there won’t be heavy rains and thunderstorms.
