    It is customary for families to be together during the Christmas celebration. Those who are working abroad would come home for a vacation and those in the city would go back to their province. This is the custom of the Filipino in their tradition of the Christmas season to be together.

    Part of the Filipino culture is being together during Christmas. Those residing in the city would usually go back to their home province a day or 2 before Christmas. That is the reason for the traffic in the highway and the difficulty to get a seat in provincial buses. And to think that they would come back to the city after Christmas, that is double the jeopardy in the trip.

    Sometimes I wonder why the city roads are clogged especially during the day before Christmas. When people are flocking to the provinces then the city roads should not be crowded. Anyway, Christmas eve is reserved for the caroling and the midnight mass so it is expected to have lots of traffic on the main roads.

    I saw the lines in the bus terminal of people going home to the province for the Christmas holiday. It is funny because some people leave Manila and some from the provinces go to Manila during the Christmas season. For sure those traveling people are carrying their gifts for their loved ones.
