183/365: Philippine Festivities in the Month of August

2nd of July

August
June officially ended which means that half of the year is done.  We are now running on the seventh month – whew that was fast!

Let’s go check out the excitement for August so we can mark them on our calendar a month in advance.  As we all know the month of August is a very important month to our Muslim brothers as this is the month where we are joining them in the observance of EID’L FITR (Feast of Breaking the Fast), a religious holiday that marks the end of Ramadan (the Islamic  holy month of fasting).

Let’s take a look on the list of August festivities.
