Celebrating the Christmas Holidays in the Philippines
When it comes to celebrating Christmas, the Philippines knows how to do it right. From the colorful décor that litter almost every street corner and home during the season, to the traditional food and drinks that are enjoyed by families and friends, the holiday cheer in the Philippines is definitely infectious.
But while most people may think that all Filipino celebrations revolve around food, there is actually much more to a Pinoy Christmas than just eating and drinking. In fact, for many Filipinos, the real essence of Christmas lies in the joyous spirit of togetherness with loved ones to celebrate.
And this is what makes a Filipino Christmas so special – it’s a time when family and friends can come together and enjoy each other’s company, regardless of any differences that may exist among them. It’s a time when everyone can just let loose and have some fun!
So, if you’re looking for some ideas on how to celebrate Christmas like a true-blue Pinoy, here are a few suggestions:
1) Start by putting up some festive decorations in your home.
While there are many different types of Christmas decorations that you can choose from, why not go with something uniquely Filipino? Why not try using rattan ornaments, capiz lights, or parols made from natural materials like those in our list? This will add a bit of local flavor to your celebration and will surely make your home look more festive.
2) Enjoy some traditional Filipino food and drinks.
There’s nothing quite like enjoying lechon, champorado, and pandesal during Christmas morning! And be sure to save room for dessert – Halo-Halo is always a favorite during this time of the year. So, get ready to indulge in some delicious Filipino cuisine!
3) Take part in some fun traditions.
One of the best things about celebrating Christmas in the Philippines is taking part in all the fun traditions that come with it. From attending Simbang Gabi masses to playing games like pasko ng pagkain (Christmas food hunt), there are plenty of activities to keep you busy and entertained throughout the season.
Overall, Paskong Pinoy can come alive with an abundance of Christmas décor, but the real spirit of it is found in the smiles, hugs, and loving words exchanged during the holidays. This Christmas season, whether you have unique Christmas decorations or regular plastic Christmas trees at home, we hope that you enjoy it with your loved whenever and wherever you may be in Manila.
