PHOTO GALLERY: A Philippine Christmas

The celebration of Christmas in predominantly Catholic Philippines is a display of piety, culture, feasts, and, in recent years, commerce.

Preparations for the festivities start as early as September. Christmas lanterns are displayed and Christmas carols played over the radio and public address systems.

Parties are held almost daily highlighted by sumptuous dinners, singing, games, and gift-giving.

The observance of the Yuletide season lasts until the first week of January, earning the Philippines the title of having the longest Christmas season.
