Longest Christmas Celebration

The “BER” months here in the Philippines is quite an exciting time for all of us. Filipinos are known to have the longest Christmas celebration. You can hear Christmas carols as early as the first day of September. And these months too will also be part of our cold, rainy season. You can expect people wearing warmers and jackets during nighttime. My friend in New York misses these times here. There in New York during winter time, you can expect to see people wearing heated winter jackets, gloves and even heated electric blanket. My friend told me that they even have a -20 degree Fahrenheit below freezing point. Wow, that’s really, really cold!
