A number of wedding ceremonies hundreds of years ago, before the Spanish colonialism, would entail a partner’s blood. These days, the ritual of marriage is very much different – people have done away with blood and tribal spiritual leaders and give way to prayers, legal documents, and wedding catering in the Philippines. Although if there is one thing the Philippines has not gone away with, it is the tradition of having a feast following a wedding celebration.
Large feasts are very common in the country. With Filipinos celebrating events like birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and much more. These events usually have a large number of guests, from family members, friends, and maybe even the whole village! These events also serve as huge get-together of family and friends, because these are some of the few occasions in which they would meet during the year. This means that you can always expect Filipino feasts to be grand and full of wonderful stories and memories. In terms of size, fun, excitement, and variety, only a few things can beat a Filipino celebration.
