Characterized by cultural diversity, Filipinos share several core beliefs and traits.

In Filipino culture, the family comes first. This ideal is taken with the more the merrier attitude. Distant family and close friends are often considered family too.

Filipinos love to celebrate in large fiestas with music and dancing. Bacolod has its MassKara Festival, Davao has its Kadayawan Festival, and Marinduque has its Moriones Festival.

In Filipino culture, traditions in their home and in their family are important. Every sort of gathering is dedicated to keeping up with each other over sumptuous food, such as Lechon pictured on the left.
