The Filipino World
Grammy-winner Bruno Mars is one of the world’s most famous Filipinos.
The Philippines has a rich and diverse culture. The Indigenous culture has native, Southeast Asian, Chinese and Indonesian influences. Muslim spice traders brought Islamic influences.
The main impact of almost 400 years of colonial Spanish rule was Catholicism. Filipinos compete with Puerto Ricans for the world’s longest Christmas celebrations. There are also Spanish food and fashion influences. Manila was one end of the Spanish Pacific galleon route. There was some mixing of people. Then the Americans came.
So Filipino culture is a blend of all this, and unique in its own way.
There is always something going on in the Philippines. The Sinulog and Ati Atihun festivals are in January. The Kaamulan festival is in Malaybalay City in February and March. The Anibina Bulawanun festival is in Copostela Province, and the Moriones Festival is on the Island of Marinduque in March. The Flores de Mayo festival is in May. The Pineapple Festival is Daet in June.
The Bocaue River Festival is in Bulacan in July. The Pangapog Festival is in Samal City in August. The Hin-Ay festival is in Irosin, Sorsogon in September. The Halaran Festival is in Roxas City, Capiz in October. The Pintaflores flower festival is in San Carlos City in November. The Giant Lantern Festival is in San Fernando City in December.
