The Misa de Gallo, bibingka and puto bumbong
Kris Kringle and unwanted angel figurines
Carolers singing “… teng-kyu teng-kyu ambabaet ninyo! teng-kyu!”
Videoke with old friends and all sorts of parties happening left and right.
Divisoria shopping, congested malls and havaianas’ queue reaching the next floor.
Kids you don’t know showing-up in your doorstep.
Kids you know showing-up in your doorstep, claiming your 13th month pay.
Then you will find yourself the next morning after christmas, staring in to nothingness, with an empty pocket, plotting a kidnapping modus operandi. Afterall kids are then richer than the tax payers.
Nothing beats Christmas in the Philippines!
