Philippine Fiestas

The Philippines is a country of fiestas, during which everything else stops. If one occurs during your visit, there is no point in getting uptight about time lost- it is better to join in the fun. Fiestas celebrate harvests, births and victories, as well as religious events. Like all modern religions, the Catholicism of the Spanish was overlaid on existing practices, with events taking place on dates formerly associated with odd rituals. Celebrations are found in every ethnic group and may be large regional events, or small local happenings. Activities center on the church, from where they proceed into the community.
