I Got 2 “Christmas Cards” But There Was Nothing in the Envelopes – Filipino Christmas Card Tradition

A gentleman stopped by and gave me two Christmas cards. I thanked him several times and even felt a bit guilty because I hadn’t even thought about giving him a Christmas card. When I opened the envelopes, they were EMPTY. Filipina Wife #1 and Fay quickly educated me on the Filipino Christmas card tradition. I just didn’t know. The best way to learn lessons in culture is through experience, my friends. I think we’ll surprise my friend with a BIG envelope full of goodies. Maybe even put some Hungarians from Angel’s Burger and a Red Horse beer in there.
