Christmas: A National Fiesta

The Philippines is known as the “Land of Fiestas,” and at Christmas time, this is especially true. Filipinos are proud to proclaim their Christmas celebration to be the longest and merriest in the world. It begins formally on December 16 with attendance at the first of nine pre-dawn or early morning masses and continues on nonstop until the first Sunday of January, Feast of the Three Kings, the official end of the season.

The Philippines is the only Asian country where Christians predominate. Majority of its people are Roman Catholic. Christmas, therefore, is an extremely important and revered holiday for most Filipinos. It is a time for family, for sharing, for giving, and a time for food, fun, and friendship.

To most Filipinos, Christmas is the most anticipated fiesta of the year and is celebrated accordingly. The splendid climate of this tropical island nation, the abundance and beauty of its flowers, and lovely landscape, its multitude of culinary delights, and above all its warm-hearted people with their true devotion to family and faith all contribute to a holiday celebrated in the true Philippines fiesta tradition.

Iyan ang mga katagang na-post ni Lance Raymundo sa kanyang Twitter at Facebook accounts. Tunay namang nakakataba ng puso. Isa ngang “angel warrior” si Lance in real-life. Kasi, kumikilos siya, he goes out of his way as a singer-performer to offer his help, give something, and share himself to the people.
Napakahalaga na mapasaya natin ang mga sugatang sundalo at ang iba ay mga disabled na na nagpapagaling pa rin sa ospital. Sila ay nagkaganun dahil sa pagtatanggol sa ating bayan! Sila ay mga real-life heroes!!!
Hanga kami sa ‘yo, Lance!!!
