Christmas & New Year Season in the Philippines
July 2, 2008 1:46am CST
My favorite holiday every year is Christmas and New Year season especially here in the Philippines. Because we share gifts, we attend "Simbang Gabi" (church) every midnight or evening, received gifts as well, lots of foods in the dining table, etc. How bout you? Have you experience celebrating Christmas & New Year season in the Philippines? Post it here.

yeah it's a family reunion thing. like "meet the clan." It's a time of gift giving and sharing! almost everybody is on vacation until new year. that's the time we spend with our families like going out of towns, going to beaches, anywhere as long you enjoy the time that you're together with your loved ones.:)

Christmas and New Year is the happiest season in the Philippines. It's the time when family members get together for a reunion to celebrate the holidays. It's my favorite season of the year too since our family is complete especially during Christmas when relatives from abroad come home to celebrate the season.

I agree, that only way we spent our time with the whole family and other relatives. Wow, your relatives celebrates their Christmas vacation here? Good for you. My father can't celebrate Christmas vacation here since he's contract is every 2 years and March is the month of his vacation.
