Book Description from Back Cover

Mabuhay! Welcome! Come join the celebration!

You can watch a parade of flower-wreathed water buffaloes, listen to the sonorous music of the kulingtang, feast on tropical fruits and flavors, dance the tinikling, or carry a sparkling bamboo lantern in a Christmas procession. There's always something to celebrate, somewhere, in the Philippines. For thousands of years people from Asia, the Middle East, and Europe came here, bringing their ideas, ways, and celebrations. In the Philippines all these people have created their own history, and their own unique stories and customs. Come share some of their special holidays!
