Fiestas Past

In the Philippine setting, fiesta is culture and culture is fiesta.  Whereas the United States has Thanksgiving Day, the Philippines, namely each village , has the barrio fiesta:  a time for celebration, a time to give thanks, a time to reconnect with one’s roots.  And yes, the focus of the fiesta is the patron saint–its benevolence , its liaison between the people and their God.
