Here are the saints and feast that our Filipino brethren honour

Fiestas in the Philippines are held to celebrate a patron saint (the Philippines is the only majority-Christian country in Southeast Asia) or to mark the passage of the seasons, depending on which part of the country you're in. The sole exception is Christmas, where the whole country breaks out in celebrations that can begin long before December.

The feast days and festivals include Feast of the Black NazareneAti-Atihan Festival,  Sinulog FestivalMoriones FestivalPanagbenga (Baguio Flower Festival)Maleldo Lenten RitesPahiyasObando Fertility RitesFlores de MayoPeñafrancia Festival and Sambuklod Honors.
