Christmas Songs From The Philippines 3
Christmas is the season of gift giving. In keeping with the tradition of giving, Filipinos have their own version of exchanging gifts or Kris Kringle, it is called "Monito Monita". This is usually done among groups of friends, classmates or officemates.
The mechanics of exchanging vary, some can be as simple as asking the participants to bring a gift, on an agreed amount which are later on raffled off to the participants, on Christmas Party.
Others starts several weeks ahead of the gift-giving time which is usually the Christmas party. All participant's name are put in a box and each member will draw a name from the box and whoever you got will be your Monito/Monita and you have to buy a Christmas present for him/her. You cannot reveal your Monito/Monita's name- it will be a secret until the revelation day.
