Our Sinulog Fiesta

January 18,2015 will be the third sunday of the year 2015. It will also be the date for our Sinulog Festival. It's the yearly celebration of our city's fiesta. Lots of local and foreign tourists will be coming to our city to celebrate with us. Hotels all over Cebu City will be fully booked and traffic will be a nightmare.

Sinulog is the dance we offer to the Holy Child Jesus or the Sto. Nino as thanksgiving for all the blessings He has given us Filipinos and most especially to us Cebuanos His faithful devotees. The dance steps are easy; two steps forward one step backwards; and is danced to the beat of the drums.

"Pit Senyor" everyone!!!

At least the tourists will be staying in the hotels nearby, so they can walk back to sleep.

It is the first time that I hear about this festival. It is always interesting to get to know more about the local festivals around the world. I would love to experience some of the festivals when I get the chance to visit the Philippines.
