I learnt that in a Sponsored mass wedding where 220 Philipino couples said ‘I do,’ took place on Thursday in the coastal city of Bacolod, Philippines and these fortunate couples exchanged vows and kisses with surgical masks over fear of deadly Coronavirus.
All participants in the ceremony were required to wear and kiss through blue surgical masks in the event. The couples had to provide the authorities with evidence of their travel history for 14 days.
John Paul Inventor, 39, said the day will live long in his memory. He married his partner of seven years and the mother of his two children.
“It feels different to kiss while wearing masks, but it was required. The place was jam-packed.”
Bacolod mayor, Evelio Leonardia presided over the ceremony. He said, “If our families are strong, the city of Bacolod becomes strong, too.” The Mass weddings are a tradition in Bacolod and more than 2,000 couples took part in a ceremony in 2013.
They are also commonplaces in South Korea. Earlier this month, around 30,000 people went to the Cheong Shim Peace World Center in Gapyeong, northeast of Seoul, according to South Korea’s Unification Church. Those attending were given hand sanitizers and surgical masks.
This is serious but hilarious, when will the Nigerian government grant some Nigerian this kind of opportunity??? Laughing out loud!!!
