In many of the world's nations, Christmas Day is a public holiday and a celebration about the nativity of Jesus Christ, and is observed religiously by a majority of Christians as well as culturally by many non-Christians, and is an integral part of the holiday season based around it. Filipinos love to celebrate Christmas in the Philippines for as long as possible, from September until December. 

On December 16, when many people go to the first of nine pre-dawn or early morning masses, the formal Christmas celebrations begin. The last mass is on the day of Christmas. When Epiphany or the Feast of the Three Kings is observed, the Christmas festivities continue until the first Sunday in January. The early masses held before Christmas in the Philippines are called the 'Misa de Gallo. 

Luckily, I chose the song " ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU" because Christmas is not just about parties, gifts, holidays, etc but it's time to remember Jesus' love for us. To remind us to forgive those who have sinned against us, whether they be members of our families, relatives and friends. To share our blessings with the poor, and to have helping hands because blessing is not a blessing unless it is shared. to Love our enemies, even though they cause pain in our hearts.

Christmas reminds us about unconditional love.
