Let Them Eat....Huh......Pork.

Philippines is overwhelmingly a Christian country, with more than 85% of the population being Christian. The vast majority of Filipinos are Catholic - the breakdown being 80% Catholic with a little more than 5% of the population being non-Catholic Christians. The number of non-Catholics in the country is almost equal to the number of Muslims in Philippines.

In spite of the fact that Muslims make up a tiny minority, tomorrow is a holiday here because it is Eid al Fitr - the ending of Ramadan fasting.

There will be no school tomorrow, in the secular or Catholic schools.

Far be it from me to tell Filipinos what days they can celebrate as holidays, but I, for one, intend to celebrate the day by eating pork during at least one meal tomorrow.

Oh yeah, and probably drink a beer as well.

It's just my own little contribution.
