Musical Interlude of the day

Simbang Gabi!

Simbang Gabi is nine days of early morning masses before Christmas day. The idea is that the mass is very early in the morning so the farmers and workers could attend mass.

Here, after mass, the young folks go to the center of town and buy food (from vendors or Jolibee) and it is a time for the young men to meet and flirt with girls.

So while the new ager types are meditating to evolve to a higher power to change the world, we Pinoys will be home having a good time: Here, religion is not about power but food and family.
