Yes, you’re reading it right: DavaoBase is wishing everyone a “Merry Christmas” today.
Celebrating Christmas in the Philippines starts on September 1, which is the onset of the “BER months” (September, October, November and December). From hereon, the winds start getting a bit colder, and local radio stations begin playing Christmas jingles.
It’s also a playful belief in the country that whoever greets you today will have to receive something from you on Christmas Day. So, you better start greeting your friends and family right now!
