‘Tis truly the season to be jolly.
Families and friends all over the country celebrated the holiday over the last few days. Gifts were given and all the good food were devoured at Noche Buena.
Some took the merry-making further than usual, though, and we’re not complaining. Here are some of the funniest Christmas stories we’ve seen online.
One Facebook user posted a picture of a 1000-peso bill to either outsmart his godchildren or sincerely say that he’s out of real money. “Guys, pamasko ko sa inyong lahat,” he wrote in the caption. “‘Di ko maibigay personally [kaya] i-print niyo na lang.” Dare we say, this is genius!
If a kid shows respect to you like this adorable kid did to every mannequin at the mall, it would be difficult to not give her anything, right?
Meanwhile, Secret Santa was extra memorable for the students and faculty of San Beda College. Their gift theme? “Bring something na mahirap iuwi,” the Facebook user wrote. Hence, all the mop, broom, a huge bottle of detergent, basin, trash can, dipper, and even a case of soda. Now, this is how you make a party extra fun.
Chicken’s a practical gift idea, too. But what if it’s alive and squawking still? That’s what a student from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines got for a Christmas gift. “Yari ka sa papa mo, pinamigay mo si bunso,” the student wrote in the post’s caption, referring to the gift-giver.
What is Filipino Christmas without food, right? With so many family members to feed, it’s understandable yet utterly funny when a family chose to put their mango-graham cake straight in their fridge’s chiller. “Rekta na,” the Facebook user wrote. “Wala nang tupperware, tupperware.” Talk about being straightforward and creative at the same time.
This fruit salad in a gigantic paint bucket, however, might just be the winner. We don’t exactly know how and why, but if there’s a need to feed a whole barangay, it works just fine. After 1,745 washes, that is.
What’s your funniest story from this year’s Christmas celebration?
