5 Reasons Why Filipinos Love Celebrations

Filipinos always have something to celebrate all through our lives. We love to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, even connoted ‘monthsaries’, graduation, Christening, and even death anniversaries. It’s also a lovely fact that we start to celebrate Christmas as early as September! Here are some reasons why Pinoys love celebrations:

Filipinos love food

Filipino delicacy is distinct. Whenever a foreigner visits the country, one out of the many things they will love about us is our food. Filipinos are generally fond of good food. There are countless delicious dishes that Filipinos could cook. Name it – our daily adobo, sinigang, nilaga, tinola, kaldereta, menudo among other dishes gives all of us a taste of home. For any occasions, get-togethers, and meetings – any celebration isn’t complete without something everyone has to munch on.

Filipinos are family-oriented

For every Filipino, family is first. And by family, we mean parents, siblings, children, grandparents, aunts, uncles, in-laws and the list goes one. Everything we do centers around our folks and their well-being. Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, getaways, and even just when most family members are present, there is always something for Filipinos to celebrate.

Filipinos are culture-rich

Filipinos are passionate about culture. There are festivals all year round all over the country which are well-attended. In addition to that, since most Filipinos are Catholic, we celebrate fiestas which are a patron saints’ feast day. We also celebrate all other religions’ commemorations like Chinese New Year, our Muslim brothers’ Ramadan, Iglesia ni Cristo day,etc. All throughout the year, Filipinos observe a certain tradition with respect to our inner culture.

Filipinos love to sing

Not just that we love to sing, but we are also known as one of the best in the world.  Filipinos generally have that great love for music.

For the longest time, singing has been our way of relieving stress, and the proliferation of KTV bars everywhere in the country is a solid proof. On any partying or family and corporate celebrations in the Philippines, even simple Friday night, there should always be a videoke machine as part of the logistics because if none, it will surely be less fun.

Filipinos are generally happy people

Rain or shine, rich or poor, Filipinos are one of the happiest people in the world and the statistics can attest to that. This happiness does not reflect any materialistic possession but people in the land are always in high spirits because of faith, health and family. Truly, there is always something to celebrate when people stays on the positive side (not to mention Pinoy’s sense of humor).
