    The holiday season in the Philippines is known as the longest Christmas season in the world. Yes, you read that right.

    As early as September, the first of the -ber months, Filipinos get hyped up for the Christmas season. You’ll know it’s that time of year when you see Christmas decorations along streets, homes, and buildings.

    Philippine women look forward to this time of the year as it is when families get together and enjoy one another’s company. Among the rest of the world, the Philippines is the only country to welcome this holiday in such a way.

  • Christmas Decorations
  • Christmas would not be complete without these. Stars on top of the Christmas trees, garlands and lights around it, plus the lanterns hanging on the ceilings. All of these things make everything more Christmas-y.

    The star is a symbolic Christmas icon as it represents the star of Bethlehem, which guided the three kings as they were on their way to baby Jesus according to the biblical story. Aside from this, it is also symbolic of the prophecy fulfilled and the shining hope for all of humanity.

    Nativity Scenes clearly portray the night Jesus was born. It depicts the presence of the Virgin Mary, Joseph, the three wise men, and all the other animals present on the night.

    As it is seen almost anywhere in the Philippines during Christmas time, some even role play and pose as the characters seen on the Nativity Scene. Crowds generally enjoy the show and look forward to the performance each year.

    Misa de Gallo is one of the Filipino Christmas Traditions in which Filipino people put a lot of interest. This is commemorated by attending the 9 night masses that begin in the early dawn of December 16, and ends on Christmas Eve of December 24.

    The Simbang Gabi, the other name for Misa de Gallo, is believed to grant you a wish once you get to attend all of the nine evening masses without being absent in one. In the Philippines, it is attended by families and groups of friends.

  • Puto Bumbong & Bibingka
  • Attending the Misa de Gallo would not be complete without having to enjoy these delightful treats. The puto bumbong and bibingka are one of the widely-enjoyed delicacies during the Christmas season in the Philippines.

    This goes perfectly along with sikwate, a hot chocolate beverage that Filipinos enjoy.

  • Christmas Caroling
  • Kids, teens, young adults, and even middle-aged people all enjoy this kind of activity. Christmas Caroling is done by singing and dancing to Christmas and holiday songs in front of the homes of people.

    In exchange, if the family you are singing to gets to enjoy your performance, then you can expect a treat. By caroling, you can receive candies, yummy treats, or even coins and bills from strangers.

  • Noche Buena

    Filipino families prepare and enjoy the grandeur of this feast. The noche buena is the Christmas dinner on the eve of December 24. It is prepared with delicious Filipino dishes and marked with the traditional Queso de Bola.

    Most of the time, the preparation of the noche buena is considered to be one of the best bonding times Filipino families can enjoy in the holidays. As it is something that only takes place once a year, people emphasize on the feast and bring out the very best in what they could have.

    If you are someone dating a Filipina, perhaps it is time for you to enjoy the festivities of Christmas the Filipino way by having to spend some time together with her family, as you prepare for the noche buena.

    The manito-manita is not like your ordinary way of exchanging gifts. It is usually done by using nicknames for the participating people, and having to pick out random names and choose out gifts that are part of the wish list or you think is something that the person you’ve picked would like to have.

    The thrill in this activity is knowing that you do not have any idea of who got yours and who you got. Could there be any more thrilling and exciting than this?

    On the day of the exchanging of gifts, a song is sung with the lyrics “I love my manito/manita, yes I do” and is repeated until you reach the person you’ve picked as you all form a circle.

    Manito denotes a male, whereas a manita is for the female.

Christmas Without Snow!

Yes! You can definitely enjoy Christmas without snow. Even when you are in a country in the tropics, Christmas could not have been more fun. If you are wondering where to go for your next holiday vacation, then no doubt it is the Philippines!

Celebrate with Filipina women, and have Christmas like no other.
