Noche buena? It’s Spanish for “good night”, literally, but in the Philippines, noche buena is steeped in cultural and religious significance. Three centuries of Spanish colonial rule included the imposition of Catholicism on the nation, creating a deep and lasting religious legacy. For Filipinos, noche buena is the night, and the feast, before Christmas Day. More specifically, it is the meal eaten after hearing the midnight mass to welcome Christmas Day.
Christmas Basket was initiated last December 2021 in the joy of sharing a Noche Buena for the families affected COVID19.
This year we are able to distribute 160 Noche Buena Package to our IP Community in Bataan, and here in Metro Manila specifically to street vendors and street dwellers who wish to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
