    Filipinos are fond of celebration that the birthday once a year is now being celebrated every month for babies. The monthsary is also common now for the annual anniversary. When a family member reaches a milestone like graduating from grade school, there will be a celebration. Just be prepared with the gifts.

    For the Catholics, we have the first communion for the 8 or 9 year olds that usually is held on a Saturday so the parents can attend the rites. After the communion, the family goes to a restaurant as a way of celebration while some have food in their home and some guests as well.

    A wedding anniversary much more if there is a renewal of vows by the couple is big deal. It is usually when the couple reaches 50 years of marriage which is called golden wedding. The occasion is very similar to a regular wedding with the wedding gown for the wife and the reception is grand.

    Even the smallest milestone is sometimes celebrated by the family such as when the youngest would graduate from kinder school before entering 1st grade, it is an occasion to celebrate. Filipinos are fond of celebration especially when the family can afford to spend and to have guests.

    Another achievement that the parents are proud of is the honor received by the child from school. There is the so called recognition day when the school awards medals to honor students. Expect the nearby restaurant to be occupied by the families of the honor students. In those small celebrations, a token of a gift would be fully appreciated.

    The wedding is a grand occasion that you have to do your part in the family. A brother in-law or sister in-law to be married needs all the financial support. If you have the resources, the foreigner can sponsor something like the video coverage or perhaps the flowers for the church and reception. That would be greatly appreciated.
