Christmas at the Hotel Alejandro has been part of the yearly tradition to most of the churchgoers including yours truly. Every after the “Misa de Gallo” 4:00AM holy mass – a Roman Catholic tradition of 9 days novena masses before Christmas day starting from the 16th up to the 24th, we usually go to Hotel Alejandro, one of the famous hotels in Tacloban City, to eat a wide array of authentic Filipino delicacies for a true experience of a Filipino Christmas celebration. You got to wait in queue a bit to get your share of the pie, but definitely worth it, a must-try and it somehow spices up the whole experience of waking up early, sacrificing for the early mass for 9 straight days. And completing the 9-day novena is a very rewarding experience and fulfillment.
