Christmas in the Philippines has been dubbed as the longest Christmas celebration in the world. The cheerfulness involved is almost unsurpassed, and takes after a long fiesta. It would not be an overstatement to say Christmas has long ago lost its religious meaning for the majority of Filipinos because the center of this celebration is deeply rooted in our belief. This holiday and has turned into a kind of family celebration with gifts and banquet.
