Christmas 2019 - Togetherness, we are one with CHRIST!!!
FCCCPC CHRISTmas Spirit Presentation
While Christmas is a holiday celebrated worldwide, some Filipino traditions fully embraced and have modified into something that can quite call "ours".. Below are the things and traditions that are uniquely Pinoy. Completing the Simbang Gabi or Misa de Gallo is in almost everyone's bucket list. It is a practice originated in the early Spanish colonial period as a practical compromise for Filipino farmers who began working before sunrise, to avoid working in the fields under the heat of the sun. Simbang gabi is a nine-day series of masses to honor Blessed Virgin Mary. The mass starts from December 16 to Christmas eve. Filipinos wake up before the crackdown to attend the mass hoping to have a granted wish once they complete the nine days.

Like any other countries, Christmas is celebrated with songs and praises. Usually, in the Philippines, group of people would fill the streets visiting houses with their instruments like tambourines and guitars singing their favorite Christmas songs. Then after the homeowners reward the carolers with money, they would sing their words of thanks. Recently, caroling has become a fund-raising activity by private organizations and Socio-economic groups.
Christmas is much celebrated everywhere in the world. This is a season to give love and give thanks. Filipino Christmas may feel like in the middle of summer or it neither has snow nor mistletoe, there's still no doubt that Pinoys always have a jolly Christmas. This is why everyone can say "Iba talaga ang pasko sa Pinas." (Christmas is indeed different in the Philippines.)
