Kawit Celebrates Christmas with a Historical Touch

It's December once again and the Philippines is getting ready for the most festive season of the year. Of course, Christmas seasons Despite the hustle and bustle of the busy and traffic streets and establishments, everyone busy getting their Christmas shopping done. There are a few sights and sounds in nearby areas where we can feel the true spirit of a Filipino Christmas, especially with our loved ones. 

Christmas has always been a part of the Filipino tradition and culture. So what do you do after you open your gifts on Christmas and celebrate Noche Buena? How about visiting some of the most historic sites in the country with your friends and loved ones? Kawit in Cavite is one of the most 
sought-after historical sites in the country today and it is one that you should visit this Christmas Season. 

Kawit, Cavite is home to some of the most historic sites in the Philippines. This is where the Aguinaldo Shrine is situated wherein the Philippine flag that we know of today was first waved publicly announcing our Independence by none other than the first Filipino President, Emilio Aguinaldo. There’s also a lot to learn about our first president and how he has lived his life and times during the revolution era. Beyond the Shrine also are  other sights to see including the “Museo ni Baldomero Aguinaldo” hailed towards the cousin of Emilio Aguinaldo and grandfather of Cesar Virata who as a prime minister in the 1980s. 

Kawit also boasts rich crafts and delicacies including the Pandayan or the local blacksmithing shop. Blacksmithing is an endangered craft that needs to be promoted and preserved. The local Pandayan is still active and you can still buy handcrafted knives and bolos made the same way during the Revolutionary era. The Christmas specialty – Puto Bumbong or a rice cake with shaved coconut and muscovado sugar is a staple food trip stop that shouldn’t be missed when visiting Kawit. 

Kawit celebrates the Christmas season through a spectacular display of lights at the Aguinaldo Shrine and Freedom Park. The Christmas lighting event was held last December 14, 2019, and a number of distinguished guests and celebrities joined in the celebration of the event. A fireworks display and lighting of the Christmas lights at the Freedom Park was also held. 

So if you want to go to a historical place this Christmas season, make sure to visit Kawit Cavite and enjoy the season filled with pride in our own heritage and historical sites. The Municipality of Kawit welcomes everyone who wishes to visit  during the Christmas season.

Pennsylvania is one of the most populous states in the nation, making it important to the country. The living areas in Pennsylvania are also diverse, ranging from small rural areas to bustling cities. Pennsylvania is an absolutely gorgeous state to live in, as the state is home to many beautiful sites and historical areas. Pennsylvania offers a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy, one of the reasons why many people are so proud to be from the state. However, some of Pennsylvania’s cities rise above the rest and are truly great places to live in. These locations have some combination of beautiful views, historical monuments, and deep-rooted cultures. So where exactly are these great places to live? Here are the top three cities to live in.


When people hear about cities in Pennsylvania, Philadelphia is usually the first city that comes to mind. Philadelphia is one of the most populated cities in the country and is prevalent in pop culture. In addition, Philadelphia has a deep history. The city was once the nation’s capital, and the city is also home to several historical locations. These locations include the Liberty Bell, one of the most iconic symbols of American freedom. Philadelphia also has a deep-rooted culture that gives the city’s residents a sense of identity. This strong sense of identity makes the city’s residents proud to be from Philadelphia. This regional pride makes Philadelphia a great place to live. Finally, Philadelphia has some great entertainment options for residents. The city has multiple professional sports teams as well as several museums and theaters. No matter what your entertainment tastes are, a big city like Philadelphia will likely satisfy it. Philadelphia is a great place to live for many people, and will surely inspire some sense of regional pride.


Another famous city in Pennsylvania is Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh is known as the Steel City and is famous for its industrialization. Pittsburgh has fallen on some hard times recently, but the city is gorgeous and still has plenty to offer. Beautiful rivers like the Allegheny and Ohio flow through Pittsburgh, making for some beautiful natural sights. Like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh has a strong local culture. Pittsburgh residents are strong hard-nosed people, something that stems from the city’s steel factory origins. The city also has plenty of entertainment options, being home to several professional sports teams as well as a multitude of entertainment venues. Even though Pittsburgh may not be the economic superpower it was in the Industrial Revolution, several big companies are either headquartered in Pittsburgh or have locations in the city. This creates many economic opportunities for both businesses and residents. In the end, Pittsburgh is a great place to live and can really offer residents a wide variety of benefits. If you’re looking for a great place to live in PA, you should try looking into Pittsburgh homes for sale and see for yourself just how great the area is.


Compared to the previously mentioned cities, Harrisburg is quite unknown. Pittsburgh and Philadelphia are much more popular and populous destinations than Harrisburg, but that doesn’t mean that Harrisburg doesn’t have its strong qualities. First, Harrisburg is the capital of the state. This means that the area has tremendous importance when it comes to state politics. Much of what goes on in our state government occurs in Harrisburg, making the area vital to the state. There are plenty of opportunities in Harrisburg when it relates to politics and government positions.  In addition, the city has a lot of local businesses and a relatively strong local economy. Many people come across the state to visit the capital, meaning that Harrisburg is a surprisingly strong tourist destination with a lot of traffic. In addition, Hershey and its areas like Hersheypark and the Giant Center are also close by. This means Harrisburg residents have plenty of entertainment options available. Finally, Harrisburg doesn’t have the high cost of living that is typically associated with cities. This allows Harrisburg residents to enjoy all of the benefits that come with living in the state capital without having to bear all of the costs of living in a major city.
