Noche Buena (Bon Appetit!) Kay sigla ng gabi Ang lahat ay kay saya Nagluto ang Ate ng manok na tinola Sa bahay ng Kuya ay mayro'ng litsonan pa Ang bawat tahanan may handang iba't iba. Tayo na giliw Magsalo na tayo Mayro'n na tayong Tinapay at keso Di ba Noche Buena Sa gabing ito At bukas ay araw ng Pasko! In a sea of miles apart from loved ones in far provinces and abroad, how nostalgic it could feel when this song of merry making has infused into our homes. Whatever predicaments the Filipinos are facing right now, the clock to Christmas continues to tick, reminding us that it is, indeed, the season of joy we've all been waiting for— eager, exhilarating and effervescent. The song entitled Noche Buena will never be out of tune in Filipino Christmas as it is sung by heart in every house under an evening panorama.

Distinctive traditions in celebrating the Christmas Eve are no less captivating around the world. The Cuban tradition is a family dinner centered around a pig roast, or lechĂłn. The pig is often cooked in a Caja China, a large box where an entire pig is placed above hot coals. In Spain, after a Christmas mass, it is particularly common to start the meal with a seafood dish followed by a bowl of hot, homemade soup. And in the Philippines, behold the magnanimity of an influx of lechon, pancit, spaghetti, fruit salad, cake, fried chicken, hamon, queso de bola, and native dishes. Even though the prices of Noche Buena chows increased compared to those of the previous year, with the sweet ham added some P20 more, will the night pale? Chinese ham costs over P900 per kilo and scrap ham about P700. Nonetheless, clipping 359 days one by one until the day of Christmas is, after all, pricier. Lechon or champorado. Ham or bread loaf. Queso de bola or tinola. Christmas is still Christmas, unstoppable and welcoming. Di ba Noche Buena sa gabing ito? At bukas ay araw ng Pasko! From your Philippine Information Agency family, Merry Christmas! Frank Cimatu, PDI - North Luzon Bureau William L. Beltran, PIA-3
