Christmas is the most important celebration in the Philippines tradition, this is the time where family gathered together it's the time for sharing and giving, the main focus of this celebration is family and during this time there is also a lot of family reunions.

Hmmm, Mary Ann, though Christmas is yet very far away from the corner, but since you brought this topic up, I have to add something...ha,ha!

Yes, for us Filipinos, this is one of the most awaited celebration by everybody, specially by the young ones and members of the family who are working abroad. Most of the time, OFWs and others living abroad are having holidays during this period, which means that they have to book their tickets even as early as 10 or even 6 months the latest to be sure that they can get the bookings that they want.

It is a usual paractice that starting the month of September, as the name of the month ends in ER, X'mas songs will start to fill the air signalling that Christmas is just around the corner! Beautiful x'mas decors can be seen in malls and even along the ways and in every home! This is the most awaited celebration a great get-together for the members of the family which is planned in every short a very memorable celebration for everybody. Yet sad to note sometimes that the real celebration, which is the birth of Jesus Christ is sometimes not a priority anymore.

Nevertheless, one of the highlights of the celebration for religious people is the Simbang Gabi, which is attending the dawn mass days before the 24th midnight mass. For foreigners visiting the country, this could be a nice experience as well!
