Monito Monita Gift

December 22, 2012 by  

Monito Monita Gift, Christmas is just around the corner. You can smell it in the air. You can feel the cold breeze during the early morning. The streets are covered by children rapping some made up Christmas Hip Hop songs while asking for loose change. Even the radio stations keep playing classic Christmas carols non stop.

It is said the longest Christmas season is found in the Philippines. I have to agree, for Filipinos are big Christmas fans. Christmas preparations such as putting up the Christmas tree, lighting of the Christmas lights, and even making the Christmas shopping list starts when the first “Ber” months, September, starts. Christmas in thePhilippineslast until January, when we celebrate the Feast of the 3 Kings. In some rural areas, Christmas is celebrated not on December 25 but on January 6.

Christmas in the Philippines is full of traditions. Some Christmas traditions are very old and has religious importance such as Misa de Gallo or Simbang Gabi. Some are more modern or made for kids such as Monito Monita.

Monito Monita or Kris Kringle is a fun way to celebrate Christmas gift giving. I really don’t know where or when this unique Christmas tradition originated, but it is very popular in the Philippines and is also conducted in many Filipino communities around the world. In many countries like in the United States, Britain and Australia, Monito Monita is called “ Secret Santa“.
