Our Silent Christmas

In Davao, the tradition is even more significant because we do not celebrate Christmas in a loud way (fireworks have been banned since 2001 so our city has zero firecracker-related injuries during this holiday season). 

It is not only a season of gift giving, but a renewal of faith as well. Sharing with you my images of nostalgic scenes of Simbang Gabi being observed in Shrine Hills and San Pedro Cathedral.  To know more about the Filipino’s Simbang Gabi, view more of my photo gallery here.
