(Inside Manila) It’s amazing how fast March can become a stranger as the month of April now comes in, with holidays and observances such as the Day of Valor, a.k.a. Araw ng Kagitingan, on the 9th. 

According to the Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines, the country will observe April as a Vacation Hazards Prevention Month, Broadcasters’ Month, National Hemophilia Awareness Month, Month of Planet Earth, and National Literature Month.

During the Holy Week, Filipinos will celebrate the Moriones Festival in Marinduque, Centurion Festival in Quezon, and Turumba in Laguna. There are also the Lami-Lamihan Festival in Basilan that showcases the rich Yakan Traditions, and the Kadaugan sa Mactan that re-enacts the Battle of Mactan along the islands’ beach.
