Christmas celebration in the Philippines had the longest. The season kicks off on the month of September until January on the following year. Since today is the beginning of September, are you start preparing your gift list?

Oh wow, I can't believe the season begins so early! Here in the UK things start to feel really christmassy around late October. I don't really think about christmas shopping right until later November to be honest, but it is definitely a great idea to plan ahead!

Yes we have a longest Christmas celebration here in the Philippines. Usually I prepared my gift list around November, but for this year I want to plan ahead around October to determine my budget.lol!

That's really sensible. You will definitely save money by planning in this way.

actually that's really my purpose, to save money at the same time give gifts to special people. I always loved Christmas season, it's my happiest season of the year and I always look forward into it especially our tradition of "mesa de gallo" or Early morning mass for nine days as a novena to the child Jesus.

Wow am I glad I don't live in the Philippines...I couldn't stand celebrating any holiday for that long. I love Christmas but I can barely handle all the stress and stuff that goes with it. [b]~~AT PEACE WITHIN~~ **STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS**[/b]

Hello twoey! Oh really?Okay I understand your feeling, if you lived here and if you are a Filipino you can surely adapt it because that's what we are born with.It is part of our tradition and customs here in the Philippines and we always look forward every year at Christmas, that's part of our daily lives. In fact the long Christmas celebration in our country is one of our cherished tradition and everybody is happy.
