    Did you know that the Philippines celebrates the "Longest Christmas Season in the World"? It starts on September 1 and ends on January 6 annually. Today is already September, I hear Christmas songs from my neighbors, my family has started decorating the house and the news programs have started the Christmas countdown. Merry Christmas to my country.

        That's a good idea, however, some authors here in Hubpages come from countries that do not celebrate Christmas. I think it would be annoying.

          How come? There should not be such limitation.

          I love anything musical--and this lens is a wealth of Halloween music. It's so nice to have it all in one place. Thanks.

      That's great. We're in that list too in Puerto Rico. There isnt an official date, but some people start decorating their houses in Sept/Oct every year. And the "Christmas" music starts in radio and stores too. In my family we do it the day after Thanks Giving.

      Christmas here lasts until the last days of January lol

      Lets party!

      This year is going to be a sad one.

        Filipino do not celebrate Thanksgiving, instead, we attend the "Simbang Gabi" or 7-night mass. I am glad that Puerto Rico celebrates Christmas in September too.

          I just read about Simbang Gabi. Its cool that its the same here. "Misas de Aguinaldo". Obviously that's something only Catholics do, but it is a Christmas tradition.

          We have a lot of things in common, Philippines and Puerto Rico beacause of our shared history.

            In my country, the Spanish translation for "Misas de Aguinaldo" is "Misa de Gallo."

              Our Misa de Gallo is the Dec 24 (Noche Buena) mass. <3

                Oh, Philippine and Puerto Rican Spanish are also different, because in the PH Noche Buena and Misa de Gallo are different things. I will read different articles about how Puerto Rican celebrate Christmas. Thank you.

                  Yes, Nochebuena is the day before Christmas. We celebrate that day too. (Catholics, Christians or not). Misa de Gallo is the name for that day mass.

                  It'd be fun to learn what other similar traditions we have.
