Christmas Tradition

During Christmas season, one of the most awaited day during this season is the start of Misa de Gallo. These are Spanish words which means Rooster's Mass and in Filipino it is called "Simbang Gabi" or Night Mass. This Misa de Gallo starts on the 16th day of December that will run for 9 days. These dawn day masses are basically conveying the tradition of people that is meant to show Filipino's faith and devotion to our God. Typicaly, the mass starts at four o'clock in the morning and will run for more than one and a half hour.

Right after this mass, people usually buy those native foods that include bibingka and puto bumbong. Families gather together to eat these foods after each every mass. This has been the tradition of Filipinos for several years now and will definitely going to continue until the next generation of Filipinos.
