Christmas is an annual celebration observed primarily on the 25th of December among billions of people around the world. It is widely observed in many countries, but would you agree that Christmas in the Philippines is the longest in the world?
For the most part of the country, this holiday season kicks off exactly as soon as the “-ber” months start on September, and usually ends on the last day of December. In Cebu and other major cities, it stretches towards the end of January intertwining with the Sinulog festival, which makes it a sweet mix of feasts. Don’t you think?
A mere mention of the holidays always implies family, food and fun everywhere we go. Almont Inland Resort, your home in Butuan, launches this celebratory season with their Christmas tree lighting event dubbed as the #PaskongAlmont. It is also a special evening meant to celebrate oneness among all of Almont Hotels’ dedicated partners and loyal guests, who continue to patronize the business throughout the years.

Paskong Almont was highlighted with performances from La Accelerando Choralle and Libertad National High School’s chosen handful. The parol lighting was led by Almont Hotels’ executives and representatives from the Department of Tourism and Butuan National Museum.
I had first-hand experience of what this rather familiar fête is really all about — one so heartwarming that is truly worth for keeps. With all pleasure, I’d love to share them with you, which brings me to my top three reasons why you should experience Paskong Almont:
The food is exquisitely delicious.
Almont Inland Resort has three food outlets — Manay Maling’s Restaurant, Joaquin’s Pizza Bar: Gemelli, and the Magallanes Bar — and this holiday season, all of which has something for everyone.
Beginning on the 16th of December, all of Almont’s in-house restaurants will be serving their holiday offerings. You may check the details below:

The ambiance is invigorating.
A majority, if not all, of us is on the hunt for something worthy to post on social media, right? The resort offers a lot of Instagrammable and like-worthy backdrops. From the mini pond to the garden, and the pool up to the main entrance, all of these spots possess a beauty in its rawness that friends would want to talk about, because FOMO.
Note: Since ’tis the season to be jolly (fra-la-la), the garden where you will find the Christmas tree is a very ideal mise-en-scene for that added holiday feel. Just be as creative as you already are, and you’re all set.
You were nice this year. Santa says, you deserve this treat.
We have all been working our arses off all the year round. Spending a day or two at the resort with your loved ones wouldn’t hurt you. And besides, it’s the time of the year when incentives and bonuses are given. So if not now, when? If not here, where else?
