Oh, how fast time flies. We're already halfway through the year and next thing you know, it's already Christmas! What else would most people look forward to this second half of every year, than Christmas?
Whoa! Christmas spirit just suddenly gotten into me! So let's talk about Christmas, did you know that Filipinos are known to have the longest Christmas Season? It starts as soon as the "ber-months" (months ending in -ber) begin. Meanwhile, in other parts of the world, people are celebrating Christmas in July.
Yes, Christmas in July is a thing. Why? I'm not really certain, it could be a tradition, but it seems like it has something to do with the season. December is summer in other countries, and doesn’t give much of a Christmas-sy feeling thus they celebrate it during the peak of their winter season which is July. Christmas is such a wonderful time of the year when you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside which makes a cold weather ideal to celebrate it.
Based on my observation, every Christmas season, aside from the Christmas decorations and gift giving, one tradition never gets old, and that is exchanging of Christmas/holiday cards.
