Leyte, being part of the Visayas region in the Philippines, has a wealth of culture and traditions. Here are just a few of them: 1. Pintados-Kasadyaan Festival: This is an annual cultural and religious celebration in Tacloban City held every 29th of June to celebrate the people's gratitude towards the Divine and the community's rich history. It also commemorates the people's respect towards their tattooed ancient warriors. 2. Sangyaw Festival: Sangyaw means "to announce" in Waray language. The festival is celebrated by the natives of Leyte through street dancing and carnival activities to honour Santo Niño. 3. Buyogan Festival: Held in Abuyog, Leyte, it is one of the famous festivities named after a bee locally known as "buyog." The festival reflects the history and mythical folk tales of the town. 4. An Waray: This is a community tradition wherein 'Bayanihan' or unity is seen. When someone is about to build a house, the whole neighborhood gets involved, and they share food together after the hard work, promoting camaraderie among residents. 5. Binagol: Binagol, also called 'bagol', is a dessert dish originally from Leyte. It is made of sweetened mashed giant taro (locally known as talyan), coconut milk, and sugar, and is packaged using coconut shells. 6. Karatong: Karatong is a bamboo instrument used in a traditional Leyte dance of the same name. Dancers promoting the bounty of coconut, which is a major product of the province, use this. As for religious traditions, Leyte is predominantly Roman Catholic, so expect seasonal practices such as Holy Week, Simbang Gabi, and vibrant feasts for patron saints in the towns. The locals give high importance to religious practices and they are a significant part of their day-to-day life. Remember, these are only few of the many traditions in Leyte. It's always best to experience these traditions firsthand to get a deeper understanding of the local culture.
