Get Excited: Christmas Season Starts Today
The most wonderful time of the year is here.
(SPOT.ph) In most countries, the month of December marks the beginning of the Christmas season. But here in the Philippines, it unofficially begins as early as September. The Christmas fever is contagious—lanterns and Christmas trees are assembled, Jose Mari Chan songs are played everywhere, holiday shopping lists are made, and suddenly, everyone has a hankering for warm bibingka. Many Filipinos have already expressed their excitement for the "start" of the holiday season online as early as August. Here's a roundup of the funniest and most relatable Christmas-related tweets and posts.
All hail the patron saint of Christmas.
