Salubong is one of the easter practices unique to the Philippines and other countries influenced by the Spaniards. The word refers to the act of meeting someone who is arriving. As the word connotes, the celebration is a reenactment of the first meeting of Christ and his mother, Mary. In the Philippines, it is usually done in 3 or 4 in the morning. As Jesus Jesus and Mary go closer, people are singing Allelujia. After that they give you the first mass of Easter. After the mass, Filipinos go home for a usual celebration. This is not written in the Bible, but our natural affinity to our mothers tell us that if there is someone to whom Christ will show himself first after his resurrection, it must be to his mother who loved him so much.

Happy Easter to my Family and to all my Friends!!!
