Santo Niño is one of the religious fiestas in the Philippines. It is celebrated in almost all parishes usually with a procession in which lots of families are participating.
They bring their own statue of Santo Niño and place it on one of the participating vehicles and / or to be blessed by the priest.
Yesterday we were passing San Pedro and Biñan, Laguna, where in one of the churches Santo Niño was celebrated. We didn’t have the time to wait for the procession to start, but I was able to make a few pictures to give my readers an impression of the happening.
Just a few days ago, one of the best known processions of Santo Niño, the one in Cebu brought many people to watch and participate in the procession. Unfortunately two people were killed in the festivities.
Santo Niño represents the infant Jesus. Probably for that reason it is celebrated in the weeks after Christmas.
