The old dictum still stands true today “ Its better to give than to receive”.

This story is one for the books, it was not Santa Claus who gave gifts, nor it was the ninong or ninang, but our own Filipino brothers from the province of Capas, Tarlac.

2 kilos of kamote were given per person who stood in the line- which occupied the full space of a basketball court.

According to the organizer Mr. Roberto Rosales, the Aetas are planning to make this act of giving in Manila as a yearly tradition.

"Pinagusapan namin kung ano ang pwede namin i-Christmas sa mga kapwa namin mahihirap. Ang napagkasunduan namin ay kung ano ang aanihin namin," Nelson Pangilinan said, tribal chieftain.

The Aetas wants to change the bad impression and their wish for the “unat” and “kulot” will be of the same footing in status.

"Gusto lang namin magpasaya ngayong Pasko na ito. Darating ang panahon na hindi na magkakahiwalay ang mga kulot at unat," Jober Ocamposaid, one of the Aeta who was their to witness and participate n the event.
