Your thoughts on the Festival of Lights?

Sulufai Tuuga, 52, Vaitele

The festival's preparation was nice and beautiful. The only thing is the power being used for this. But everything else such as the preparation is nice. I know there are no one who wouldn't have the Christmas feeling. To me, the Christmas feeling is really important, not only the lights but everything or anything is important for Christmas.

The Festival of Lights are nice and it will be a happy Christmas because Samoa is celebrating it. I was watching it on the television and it was nice and clear.

It was really nice but I wasn't watching. However, I heard a lot of people who were there last night so it's really nice. There will probably be a night when I will go and watch the Christmas lights here in the town area.

I know that this will become a tradition and will also be done next year. I hope that it will be done next year because it is really nice. It was nice and I felt happy. When the borders open next year then there will be a lot of guests will come here. If it will be a tradition then it will be great.

It was nice. It was a new view. In my opinion, it was nice because this is the only year where there is a change in the view. It is nice that there is a change now. I already saw it last night so I have seen all the lights that they turned on.

It is a nice view and a change for this year. Christmas is here now when the lights were turned on. If it is done again then we will come back and watch it.
