Every Filipino is looking forward to Christmas. Why? Of course because Filipino Christmas is the best Christmas in the world for these reasons:

1. Christmas parties everywhere!

How many gifts did you already receive from your manita/manito/godparents?


2. No annoying snow.

Some people might love snow, but with our current traffic situation, we’re really better off without it. Christmas is still cold though even without snow!


3. The magnificent lights and lanterns.

It’s like a winter wonderland!


4. Artistas everywhere!

Even if you’re not a fan of MMFF, seeing these handsome actors and beautiful actresses can be refreshing during the Parade of Stars. I’m looking forward to personally meeting Coco Martin!


5. We have the longest Christmas in the world.

We celebrate it as early as September and usually ends in January. How’s that?


6. Grumpy people are less… grumpy. Praise Santa and Jesus!

How’s your boss. Do you notice something about him? Yeah, he’s actually smiling!

People always remind you to put Jesus in your heart not just during Christmas but everyday. And it’s kinda effective during December.


7. Christmas bonus and 13th month pay.

8. CHRISTMAS SALE and (kinda) EXTENDED mall hours!

And did I say that malls are everywhere in the Philippines? No need to go that far to shop!


9. Fruit salad is delicious. Ham is delicious. Everything is awesome!

You know, ham is really delicious ’cause you usually only eat it during Christmastime. Just be careful or you might get fat.


10. Filipino Christmas is family-centered.

Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
