Only in the Philippines

I am assuming.

The moment September arrives Christmas carols play everywhere.

Even though there are few more universal celebrations to look forward to like Halloween and Thanksgiving, nothing gets into the way of the “ber” months.

Everyone becomes excitable!  Preparations begin way ahead of time.

One would think that by the time December arrives the mood would go stale.

No way!  It only gets crazier with more traditions and festivities coming to play.

The only thing missing is the weather. No fall and definitely no winter.

It’s either rain or shine. 

No storm can dampen the mood of Christmas in the Philippines.

Deck the halls with boughs of holy, fa la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la.

I think I got it!  That’s one “fa” and eight “la’s”.
