MANILA, Philippines – When was the last time you attended a reunion?
While reunion season typically peaks during the holidays, these get-togethers are actually a year-round thing for Filipinos. Whether they involve families, classmates, or work colleagues, we’ve all received that unassuming Facebook (or card!) invite, encouraging us to dress up and spend a night either perusing the canapés, singing karaoke, or dodging reunion comments.
At the end of the day, however, it’s all in the name of fun, nostalgia, and making beautiful new memories.
On January 17, Rappler led a Twitter discussion that revolves around the beauty behind these get-togethers. What are your reunion rants and raves? What are your favorite memories? What do you love most about reconnecting with people who were special to you at some point in your life?
