MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Whenever you see or hear Jose Mari Chan sing his most popular carol, you know it’s Christmas season in the Philippines.
The country is known to have the longest Christmas season in the entire Christendom, officially beginning the first of September.
But lo and behold, Christmas 2023 begins even earlier. It has actually begun on Easter Sunday, locally known as Pasko (Christmas) Ng Pagkabuhay.
Yesterday, Filipino netizens reported the first sightings of Chan.
