Christmas in the Philippines
|MANA Davao 2012|
You will see neighbors and even strangers greet MERRY CHRISTMAS sincerely with a SMILE. Seniors too, received gifts from their loved ones from a faraway places.
It is said that the joy of Christmas is for children.
This is the month wherein children are dress in their best clothes and shoes for Christmas party in school, time to visit and show respect of their grandparents, godfather, godmother and relatives and received traditional gifts like toys and money.
The most colorful and happiest day in the year. But we don't forget the important practice we have here in the Philippines, the art of SHARING and GIVING during CHRISTMAS SEASON.
As they say, this is the best way to express BY GIVING more than RECEIVING.
Last year our country experience a great sadness due to TYPHOON YOLANDA struck with great fury and left a trail of devastation. But our country manages to rise up and still celebrates Christmas in a simple way.
Traditionally we do have parties, a lot of food prepared and lot of money spent for gifts but instead we send what we have saved to support people who have been affected by the typhoon.
The whole Philippines celebrate Christmas in a quite way, we share our good and fortune to the people of Tacloban.
Celebrating Christmas in the Philippines is also focusing with our spiritual preparation, in a way how we welcome our MESSIAH into our LIFE! How we manage our Christian spirit with GRATITUDE and TRUST to GOD who provides everything what we have.
