Sinulog – Pit Senyor!

Sinulog is by far the grandest festival I’ve ever experienced in the Philippines. It is an annual cultural and religious festival held every 3rd week (Sunday) of January.

Aside from its religious significance, Sinulog is also famous for street parties and the grand street parade that practically lasts the whole day.

“Sinulog” coined from the Cebuano word – Sulog which means “like water current” that describes its forward-backward steps. According to historical accounts, the first Sinulog dance was danced by Hara Humamay (Rajah Humabon’s wife). It was when they received the Sacred Image of Child Jesus (Sto. Nino) – a gift from the explorer Ferdinand Magellan – that the queen danced in joy with the other natives following her. 

I will post some photos I’ll be taking this Sunday – the day of Sinulog itself. 

 

Here are the route maps of Sinulog to guide our festival goers;
