Philippines Festivals and Philippine Fiestas are what Filipinos live for and when it comes round to “living it up”, Filipinos are up there with the best of them.
A siesta can be taken anytime during the day but typically it is when the sun is at it's hottest so anytime between 12 and 2pm and often after lunch.
If you are visiting a foreign country that has a siesta, the siesta starts about a quarter of an hour before you get hungry.
Usually the whole family prepares and everyone, especially with culinary expertise, brings out the best of their specialty dishes.
This was so in the home of our Lola Asyon in Talisay.The fiesta is for thanksgiving for blessings bestowed upon the people and the area.Fiestas are always causes for gatherings and celebrations and Filipinos love fiestas. The lechon, the roasted pig, is a highlight feature served during a fiesta.During the feasting there is dancing in the streets, parades with floats and in some instances beauty pageants.Philippines Festivals mostly evolve around a common theme of religion.So when you want to buy some food or have a mid-day meal, all the shops, cafes and restaurants are closed…THE Philippines they say has the most number of celebrations or feasts to commemorate an event. After dinner it is common to take a siesta, and the whole town seems to close down. My favourite part of Mexican culture has to be the siesta.You really have not experienced the rich diversity of the Philippines until you have experienced Philippines festivals.I must admit I have know idea how they can afford to put on such extravagance with the warmth and generosity they show to all.
