(SPOT.ph) Pinoys love to celebrate—that much we can all agree on. Whether it’s your cousin's neighbor's wedding or your barber's son's binyag, we always make it a point to be present for any special occasion.

But why stop there? There are loads of simple occasions out there that call for a celebration. Here are some of them:

1. The day you and your best friend met
It would be nice to celebrate all those years of friendship, don't you think? You don’t have to do anything fancy— a few drinks at your favorite bar will do.
