Philippine Culture and Traditions

Free eBooks on Filipino Culture and Traditions is the original, first Philippines Expat site on the Net, since 1989.  Authored by Don A. Herrington, the site takes you to the heart of Filipino culture, traditions, beliefs, superstitions, religion, language, and diet.

Filipino Popular Tales  compiled into one PDF book is available for free download at  pdfbooks.  Written by Dean S. Fansler, The folk-tales in this volume which were collected in the Philippines during the years from 1908 to 1914 have not appeared in print before. They are given to the public now in the hope that they will be no mean or uninteresting addition to the volumes of Oriental Maerchen already in existence. The Philippine archipelago from the very nature of its geographical position and its political history cannot but be a significant field to the student of popular stories. Lying as it does at the very doors of China and Japan; connected as it is ethnically with the Malayan and Indian civilizations; occidentalized as it has been for three centuries and more; it stands at the junction of East and West. It is therefore from this point of view that these tales have been put into a form convenient for reference. Their importance consists in their relationship to the body of world fiction.
