Christmas Celebration

One of the most important holidays of the year and of course my  most awaited day had passed and it was "CHRISTMAS". But then, it could still not stop me from reminiscing how wonderful it is to celebrate Christmas in the Philippines. It has been said that we have a longest Christmas season because of  that what  we call "BER" months. This Months starts from September until December. As early as this months, you could already hear Christmas songs being played on the radio, Christmas trees displayed on the malls, Christmas lights on every houses and hearing people talking about Christmas. Decors are already starting to sprout up or sold for the buyers who are starting to shop around for Christmas. Christmas gifts are already on display in various stores around the country. We also had this tradition which we called "Misa De Gallo" (Dawn Mass) which starts from December 16  up to December 24, this 9 day novena usually happens at around 4:00 am in the morning and they said that if you were able to complete the 9 days, your wish will be granted, but sad to say I wasn't able to complete it. We also have Christmas parties everywhere, well, that is one of our traditions. The food were also delicious. Each family really tried their very best to have something on thier table as they wait for Christmas. Lastly, the caroling where lots of Children are going around the houses to sing Christmas song. It was so funny listening to them even though they were not able to say the lyrics correctly but at least they were in tune. That is CHRISTMAS here in the Philippines.
