It is the only Asian country with a predominantly Christian population, and is considered to have the longest Christmas season in the world.
The celebration, which covers all months ending in "ber", begins in September and lasts until the start of January, although most ceremonies are held in December!
In fact, you can expect to start hearing Christmas carols playing in shops and malls any time now!
Christmas is also a highly popular time for tourists to visit the country, along with the New Year holiday, and many accommodation providers are fully booked weeks before the event. If you're considering a holiday in the Philippines over Christmas, our advice would be, don't leave it too late...
