The end of the year always comes with a flurry of activities. You can feel that the holidays are near as street lamps get adorned with garlands, Christmas carols are featured in radio stations and music devices, and even the wind comes with a little chill. 

The world may have gone through plenty of trials this year, but one thing is for sure – Christmas is around the corner and nothing can stop Filipinos from spreading good cheer. 

Filipinos can be creative in finding ways to celebrate with their loved ones, whether they will be holding a series of e-reunions or practicing safety protocols when gathering at home. 

One important element of any holiday celebration is food. 

If you are looking for festive and creamy dishes to liven up the Christmas table, here are some recipes you can check out.
