1. Holiday traditions
The moment we see twinkling parols (lanterns) hanging in homes and other establishments is that one defining indicator that Christmas is here. Kim shared that this is just one among the many Filipino Christmas traditions that get her excited.
"Setting up the Christmas tree is another favorite tradition of mine. There's a different kind of joy, like when you're finally getting into the holiday spirit, in planning what the Christmas tree will look like
If you're still on the hunt for parols, you can purchase from the world-class lantern-makers in Pampanga, dubbed as the country's Christmas capital, and have them via same-day truck delivery.

Indulging in bibingka and puto bumbong is just one of the things that Kim absolutely adores about Christmas. Honestly, are you even Filipino if you've never had these Paskong kakanin which often pop out the minute the clock strikes midnight and welcomes September -- the start of the Pinoy Christmas season?
