Christmas in Historical Kawit – Worth the Travel

Kilala ang Cavite sa pagiging traffic na lugar nito. Years daw kasi bago ka makauwi, lalo nat dadaan ka pa daw ng PITX. Yan ang unang pumapasok sa isip ng tao pag Cavite.

Ang lingid sa kaalaman ng mga tao, may kabilang liko ang Cavite – yung papuntang Kawit. Kung papsyal ka at medyo feel mo na magpaka-Pilipino, o trip mo lang talaga na makakita ng Christmas displays with a twist, it is best to go to Kawit at night.

Pag medyo napaaga ka, the Aguinaldo House may still be open. Pero dahil panggabi ako – pictures na nung gabi ang meron ako.

It’s that time of the year where the Philippines celebrates another festive season. Despite the hustle and bustle of the busy and traffic streets and establishments, everyone busy getting their Christmas shopping done. There are a few sights and sounds in nearby areas where we can feel the true spirit of a Filipino Christmas, especially with our loved ones.

Christmas has always been a part of the Filipino tradition and culture and what better way to celebrate the holidays is by visiting some of the most historic sites in the country with your friends and loved ones. Kawit in Cavite is one of the most sought-after historical sites in the country today and it is one that you should visit this Christmas Season.

Kawit, Cavite is home to some of the most historic sites in the Philippines. This is where the Aguinaldo Shrine is situated wherein the Philippine flag that we know of today was first waved publicly announcing our Independence by none other than the first Filipino President Emilio Aguinaldo. There’s also a lot to learn about our first president and how he has lived his life and times during the revolution era. Beyond the Shrine also are other sights to see including the “Museo ni Baldomero Aguinaldo” hailed towards the cousin of Emilio Aguinaldo and grandfather of Cesar Virata who as a prime minister in the 1980s.

Kawit also boasts rich crafts and delicacies including the Pandayan or the local blacksmithing shop. Blacksmithing is an endangered craft that needs to be promoted and preserved. The local Pandayan is still active and you can still buy handcrafted knives and bolos made the same way during the Revolutionary era. The Christmas specialty – Puto Bumbong or a rice cake with shaved coconut and muscovado sugar is a staple food trip stop that shouldn’t be missed when visiting Kawit. Kawit celebrates the Christmas season through a spectacular display of lights at the Aguinaldo Shrine and Freedom Park. The Christmas lighting event was held last December 14, 2019, and a number of distinguished guests and celebrities joined in the celebration of the event. A fireworks display and lighting of the Christmas lights at the Freedom Park was also held.

Make sure to visit Kawit Cavite this Christmas Season and enjoy the season filled with pride in our own heritage and historical sites in Kawit. The Municipality of Kawit welcomes everyone who wishes to visit Kawit during the Christmas season.

Habitat’s annual Christmas program “Pamaskong Handog” (Christmas offering) inspires the public to give back to our fellow Filipinos in need during this season of giving. Companies and organizations can set aside some funds from their Christmas party budget, or gather voluntary contribution among members which will help ongoing rehabilitation efforts in various areas nationwide.   In appreciation of their generosity, Habitat will match every P1000 donation with a Noche Buena pack to be shared with its assisted family under the donor’s name.

“This season is the best opportunity to show that a little help goes a long way for a family who would like Christmas a bit more special.” Charlie Ayco, CEO and Managing Director of Habitat explains.

More than just giving Noche Buena packs, Pamaskong Handog is really about rekindling hope among  numerous families’ who slowly rebuild and improve their lives when they move to their new home.

“Like Jesus Christ who was born in a humble shelter, he was able to inspire hope to a vast majority of people. Together with our donors, would also like to lead by example and demonstrate the love of Christ through this program”, Ayco adds.

For more information on how to partner, kindly contact our Mass Marketing Unit at 846-2177 or email donorservices@habitat.org.ph. You may also visit www. www.give2habitat.org/philippines/pamaskonghandog and learn more about the on-going program.
