Christmas in the Philippines is known worldwide for being the longest-running celebrations for Christmas in the entire world. The country is famously renowned for starting their celebrations months before. One of the Christmas traditions in Philippines has them start their Christmas preparations during September. Called the “Ber Months” ( SeptemBER, OctoBER NovemBER and DecemBER), Filipinos get their Christmas spirits on at the start of September, and the celebrations run till the first Sunday of January when they celebrate the Feast of the Three Kings and end the celebrations. The country’s citizens are mostly Christians, with more than 80% of the Catholic, which makes Christmas the most important festival of the year in the whole country

Since the Christmas tradition in the Philippines begins early, here are some of the traditions that the Filipinos do during Christmas season.
