The season of sharing and caring

Christmas is a sacred religious holiday and a cultural commercial phenomenon. The season is celebrated around the globe and every culture has its respective practices when celebrating the holiday.

Over the years, people around the globe have been celebrating the season with traditions and practices that are considered sacred and secular. For Christians, Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ. It is usually celebrated on December 25 as both a religious and cultural celebration.

Christmas Eve is very important in the Philippines, as people await midnight arrival. Families go to church to hear Christmas Eve mass, followed by the Noche Buena. The Philippines has the longest Christmas celebration around the globe. It starts in September and ends around January.     

Christmas traditions may be similar in many countries. It is common to see people exchanging gifts, decorating Christmas trees, attending Christmas mass, and sharing meals with family and friends. Of course, the image of Santa is commonly seen as decor or as a mascot of a shopping mall or a group. 

Christmas Decorations

Christmas decorations are any items used as a reminder that the most awaited day is just around the corner. The decorations are displayed to make the spirit of Christmas feel and be experienced by the public. The common colors associated with the season are pine green, snow white, and heart red. Blue and white represent winter, and these colors are commonly mixed with metallic colors such as gold and silver. 

In the Philippines, Christmas lanterns are displayed in many households and establishments. Over the years, the appearance of lanterns has evolved, including the addition of bright and colorful lights. Nativity displays are also seen as they remind us of the scene when Christ was born in a manger. Poster prints that feature symbols and Christmas-inspired images are also displayed to create a festive room or space. The colors create a fun and exciting room atmosphere appropriate for the season.
