A royal and pontifical “tomasino” christmas.
Nope. This is not a scene from a movie.
Not a christmas village somewhere across the globe.
Not even a manipulated subject of a christmas postcard.

But this is a place where people are in their happiest.
Where everyone knows everyone.
It’s a place where emotions are higher than the sky.
Where the stars burn all the hatred in your soul.
They light up even the dullest places in your heart.

A place where smiling is the only thing you will do.
And band-cheering will be the least of your priority
Because raising your hand (while shouting) is a custom gesture that naturally comes out.
The saints and philosophers party with you.
And God… (oh god)
He blesses you.
Where rain showers were never wrong.
And a signal torch was never bad.
Where love raised a tree larger than life…
…that are as incredibly big as the gifts of your desired dreams.
It’s the most royal…
…celebration this season.
Where hearts beat as one.
You call it “Christmas”. They call it “Paskuhan”.
And because Christmas is more fun in UST, it doesn’t end there!
There’s nothing like a little #AfterPaskuhan to keep the spirit of the Thomasian holidays alive! See you there tonight, fam!
