I miss is AsianSmiles, one of my dearest online friends. Although she is no longer blogging, she remains on my "A" list when it comes to writing about culture. When I came across her 2005 post, "A Pinoy Christmas," I was instantly intrigued, especially when my Filipina buddy made this declaration:

Her post also carried a link to a website with some beautiful Christmas images, such as the Filipino star lantern pictured above.
