Business this christmas season
Christmas is fast approaching. Usually in this festive season, business tend to pick up, stores are full, malls are jam packed with people shopping for presents. But when you step out of the malls and into the streets, you will notice there isn't a lot indication that christmas is only a few weeks away.
When I was a lot younger. You can already see christmas decorations on most pinoy houses as early as october. Its now late november and Its a rarity to see even a house with christmas lights anymore from where I live. Well who can blame them, with the high price of electricity and not so good business and political environment we have these days. And every year is only seems to get worse.
Even the average middle class Filipino's purchasing power has been diminishing yearly, and its down right horrible on the urban poor. And notice a lot of banks are now aggresively promoting personal loans and credit cards through telemarketing and even tru texting because they know most people are in need of money.
On the bright side, the food industry will undoubtedly see an increase in sales, Pinoy's love to eat and noche buena will not be complete without the usual Filipino fare of hamon and queso de bola.
