PASKO The Philippine Christmas
By Reynaldo Gamboa Alejandro & Marla Yotoko Chorengel
1998 First Edition, First Printing
Christmas in the Philippines (Filipino: Pasko sa Pilipinas), one of two predominantly Christian countries in Asia (the other one being East Timor), is one of the biggest holidays in the archipelago. The country has earned the distinction of celebrating the world's longest Christmas season, with Christmas carols heard as early as September and lasting variously until either Epiphany, the Feast of the Black Nazarene on 9 January, or the Feast of the Santo Niño de Cebú on the third Sunday of January. The official observance by the Church in the Philippines is from the beginning of the Simbang Gabi on 16 December until the Feast of the Epiphany on the first Sunday of the year.
Huge 208 page book with great photos of the traditions of Pasko! Great condition!
