Oplan Pasko Na Naman 2014: NMIS-LGU Bantay Karne Operations
Filipinos can’t get enough of it. Given that the Philippines has the longest if not one of the longest observance of Christmas in the whole world, you’d think we would be a bit bored about it. No, we revel in it. We celebrate the season from the 16th of December to the Feast of the Three Kings. Roughly three weeks of gourmandizing for almost every Filipino. First, there’s the Simbang Gabi breakfast of puto bumbong or bibingka (variations of rice cakes) from December 16th-24th, then company Christmas parties, the class reunion luncheons or dinners, then the Noche Buena salo-salo for Christmas Eve followed by the Christmas day family get-togethers. After family, it’s friends- the barkada nights, and to top it all, the Media Noche feast for New Year’s Eve. So many feasts, so little time.
