I am a Filipino and I love my country. The tradition I like the most is the Mano. It is a tradition passed down from older generations to younger generations. It is the act of asking for the elders' hand and gently tapping it on your forehead. It is a sign of respect. This tradition shows how much the younger generations respects the older generations. There are a lot of culture and tradition here in the Philippines. Come visit us and experience it for yourselves!
