A taste of Asia in the heart of Austria

Merry Christmas!

” Malamig ang simoy ng hangin, kaysaya ng bawat damdamin!”

This isn’t just a simple Himig Pasko for most Filipinos in Europe, most especially in Austria. Apparently, this is a manifestation that it’s winter time in the continent.

Speaking of Christmas, this time of the year is probably one of the most important events that we, Filipinos love to celebrate. Besides the fact that Chrismas is the longest season which starts in the “ber” months and ends in early January, it is the season of giving and loving. As the song goes “Why dont you give love on Christmas day?”

Christmas in the truest sense of the word need not only be celebrated in one season or night of partying and gift-giving. Ang Christmas ay Pasko when the spirit of sharing and loving is well-manifested throughout the year.

Ang Christmas ay Pasko, even if we don’t have hamon or keso de bola to put in our table, because the spirit of Christmas is within our hearts. It doesn’t matter where we are because as long as there are Filipino expats, the essence of paskong pinoy is always felt. Be it in Europe, Asia, Americas or even North Pole where Santa and his reindeer prepare our gifts.

And for us here in Austria, we are blessed to have various Filipino communities, where we can  celebrate our own PASKONG PINOY.

Maligayang Pasko and may the new year bring us new hope in this trying times when the world is in crisis.
