Muntinlupa City, Metro Manila | January 1
This is one of those rare annual occasions in the city when Manila goes literally flowery.

January 3- January 16
The Ati-Atihan, held every January in the town of Kalibo in the province of Aklan on the island of Panay, is the wildest among Philippine fiestas. Celebrants paint their faces with black soot and wear bright, outlandish costumes as they dance in revelry during the last three days of this week-long festival.
The Ati-Atihan, a feast in honor of theSanto Niño, is celebrated on the second Sunday after Epiphany. Catholics observe this special day with processions, parades, dancing, and merrymaking. The Santo Niño has long been the favorite of Filipinos and devotion to it has been intense ever since an image was first presented to Juana, Queen of Cebu, in 1521.
Although the Ati-Atihan seems to show only revelry, a closer look shows that it has historic origins.

STO. NINO FESTIVAL
Nationwide ( Every first week of January)
The month of January in the Philippines is Santo Niño Festival Month. It is the period when many of our provinces, towns, and cities in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao pay homage to the Holy Child Jesus. They prepare months ahead in anticipation of the large volume of local and foreign tourists who will flock to their areas to watch and take part in the festivals.
Among the colorful festivals frequented by tourists are the Ati-Atihan in Kalibo, Aklan, and Sinulog Festival in Cebu City (3rd Sunday); the Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo City (4th weekend); the Binanog Festival in Lambonao, Iloilo, and Sinulog (Kabangkalan) Festival in Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental (2nd Sunday); the Makato Sto. Niño Festival in Poblacion Makato, Aklan (January 15); the Kahimunan Festival in Libertad, Butuan City, and Batan Ati-Ati Malakara Festival in Poblacion Batan, Aklan (January 16); the Bansudani Festival in Bansud, Oriental Mindoro (January 17); the Altavas Sto. Niño Festival in Poblacion Altavas, Aklan (January 21-22); the Ibajay Ati-Ati Municipal and Devotional Fiesta in Ibajay, Aklan (January 22-23); the Dinagsa Ati-Atihan Festival in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental (January 24-30); the Hinirugyaw Festival in Calinog, Iloilo (January 30-February 6); and the Sto. Niño Festival in Malolos, Bulacan (last Sunday of January). The Tondo Fiesta that coincides with the Feast of the Santo Niño (3rd Sunday) is by far the biggest fiesta in Manila, not only because Tondo is the most populous district of the city but also because many tourists are attracted by the myriad of stories about Tondo’s miraculous image of the Child Jesus.
” Mahirap bang mahalin ako para ipagpalit sa hindi ka mahal”
“Sabi mo mahal mo ako pero lagi kang nakatingin sa malayo na parang wala ako sa tabi mo”
” Kulang pa ba na makapag-aral ako at itaguyod ang sarili para maabot ang mga pangarap ko o sadyang kulang pa ang panahon para makuha ko ito”
“Bakit may mga tao na hindi kayang tanggapin kung ano ka kahit maayos ka namang tao”
