Christmas is the most awaited and celebrated season of the year for us, Filipinos. It is said and believed that the Filipino Christmas celebration is the longest ever around the globe. The highlights of this celebration includes the Misa De Gallo (the mass celebrated at midnight on Christmas Eve), Filipino Christmas foods and of course the gifts that we give and receive.
Here in the Philippines, exchanging gifts is one of the oldest yet grandest form of Christmas tradition. This exchange gifts do take place almost everywhere; from home up to the offices and schools. Exchanging gifts weeks before Christmas is always done yearly. Because of this, some gifts are kind of become common and expected to be given and received. In this article of mine, I will tell you what are the top items or things being given and received during exchange gifts.
