When was the first Christmas celebrated in the Philippines? What started the tradition of "Simbang Gabi"? Who wrote the first Philippine carol? Who created the first Philippine lantern or "parol"? How was Christmas celebrated at the turn of the century or during the war? How did the Americans bring a "White Christmas" mentality to our native "Pasko"? Finally, the answers to all the questions that have crossed our minds since the day we first heard of Santa Claus, are to be found in this fascinating compendium of Christmas essays. Pasko is the first major anthology of writings devoted exclusively to this most beloved of Filipino feasts.
