It’s finally December, and we have grown accustomed to the usual activities once the “ber” months begin. However, the Christmas fever doesn’t stop there. Thanks to the ever so handy-dandy Netflix, we are provided with movies and TV shows of all genres, even more than the holiday season begins.

The Enderun Wishlist | The Longing Wishes of Every Titan
It may be a struggle to come up with a Christmas wish list because we tend to worry about judgment from others when we send it to them. Moreover, we are limited to doing so because of the pandemic.
With this, INK conducted a survey, asking multiple Enderun Titans what they wanted for Christmas. We received answers that reflected their true wishes and their authentic Titan hearts and traits.
A Merrier Christmas
As Filipinos, we love to celebrate Christmas for as long as possible. We put up Christmas decorations around our house, set up a Christmas tree and play Christmas songs while having our morning coffee as early as September.
As Christmas is a big holiday in our country, this is not the case for other countries. Christmas may be celebrated on different days, have different origins of their traditions, cultures incorporating folklore in their customs, so we must remember to be respectful to each and everyone’s celebrations.
How Titans Spend Christmas
As we approach that time of the year again, people are starting to celebrate one of the loveliest and most joyous seasons— Christmas.
And since Enderun is a school of diversity, meaning that everyone’s customs, traditions, cultures, and practices are unique and special, INK asked Enderun Titans to answer a survey on how they spend their Christmas or holiday season.
Do You Believe in Santa Claus?
We all know who Santa Claus is, but if you still haven’t heard of him, Santa Claus is the festive symbol of Christmas who secretly gives out gifts and brings out hopefulness filled with magic he spreads throughout every house in the world
Whether you believe in Santa Claus or not, we can still embody the spirit of hope and giving that he represents.
