I'm more close to my Filipino heritage than the Mexican part of me. But there are similar traditions with both cultures like the 3 Kings Day, All Souls Day (Dias de los Muertos), and Christmas in general.

I follow more with the roman catholic church calendar of events, my family is really religious (mother is the leader on it), so I'm normally caught doing things for the church and all the traditions that they have. It's very lengthy, but you get the gist of it.


Kumusta ka?
I love Filipino culture and I'm quite active with the community at my church.
We celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Penafrancia in September and the feast of the Santo Nino this month.

I respect family tradition and culture but if no one (grandma) tells me to do it... well I won't...

lol, we celebrate the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (patron saint for our church), they also celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe as well. I think most Filipinos are involved with their church, regardless of what their denomination is

Today is the feast of Nuestro Padre Jesús Nazareno in Manila. My friends have been posting pictures all day long.

No...

I don't celebrate any of the festivals anymore. I only speak the language like a native.

I don't really celebrate anyone's cultures.

I actually had to google "American culture" because I have no clue what America likes or does anymore, I can't name one song on the Billboard Top 200 right now, name a current news story prevalent to only America. I don't know any team in the NFL playoffs. I only know like two movies that are coming out.

The only American thing I do love is baseball. I love baseball. Other than that, not close at all. The opposite honestly.

I just live my life and not concern myself with the nonsense around me.

Well I was born in Gibraltar and lived in Spain for 7/8 years, so in that time I followed the local customs & traditions and such. I.E, National Day in Gibraltar, 3 Kings in Spain as well as Christmas & New Year. Now living in the UK, I only do Xmas & New Year with the vast majority of christian holidays/days of worship nothing more than another day of the week for me.

Hmm....well as a Bahamian I can't honestly say we have very many distinct traditions aside from Junkanoo, straw work (which I don't know how to do), and the cuisine. Take that away and we may as well be South Florida .

I don't follow any specific culture. This is the result of me being anti-nationalist and anti-patriotistic.

Not very close. I don't care about tradition and have a strong dislike to most ceremony.

my family is from mexico, we usually put up a small shrine( flowers and candles) on the day of the dead, and eat rosca de reyes which is a bread usually eaten on that day, that's about it very basic stuff.
