Shop & Support Filipino @ BPI Sinag ng Pasko Bazaar (+ Win @ Giveaway)!
In the Philippines, the Christmas season is equated with “Christmas shopping” and “festivities“. You will see these evident through filled-up malls, Christmas parties left and right, and frenzy people buying gifts.
Although most may regard these practices as trivial, it actually emanates from a deep and special part of the Filipino Christmas culture of “Giving“. Filipinos usually shop in this season not for themselves – but for gifting to others; they want to share their blessings. And they party not just for merriment, but to reconnect with their loved ones and long-lost friends.
So this Christmas, don’t hesitate to express that you care through gifts. The amount does not count. As they say, it’s the thought that counts. Share. Love.
