It is likely that ferries will not run anywhere in the Visayas from Christmas Eve through Boxing Day, so anybody who needs to get someplace should do it now rather than waiting.

What is Boxing Day…

As of right now, there's signal #1 for just a few areas. Eastern Samar, Dinagat, and all the rest of those municipalities listed below are here on Siargao island. Right now it's a beautiful blue sky day with a very mild breeze. You're certainly correct though; signals will be going up over a wide area very soon. 

"TCWS#1 may be raised over Northern Samar, Samar, Biliran, Leyte, Southern Leyte, and mainland Surigao del Norte in the next Severe Weather Bulletin."

And this year the day of the solar eclipse! We will hopefully have nice clear skies by the 26th when this system blows through.

Latest storm signal #1. Expect more by 5 pm. Boat travel in a lot of the Visayas is shutting down. Hope you're where you want to be.

As long they fly me to General Santos on 25th so I can watch the eclipse there on 26 I'm fine :-)

Considering the number of people taking ferries home for the holidays, this is going to be the transportation nightmare before Christmas…

Luckily, the wife got home this morning from a 4 day trek across Mindanao. It was touch and go at times...

Because of all the fights from people not getting what they wanted.

An English tradition of distributing Christmas Boxes to servants and the poor the day after Christmas. Dec 26 is also St Stephen’s Day. St Stephen was noted for acts of charity. 
If you are familiar with it, the Good King Wenceslas carol tells a similar story (starts Good King Wenceslas looked out on the feast of Stephen...). 
In my childhood it was generally the day that those who delivered to the house (postman, milkman) received a tip. 
These days it has degenerated into the first day of the January sales....

 

This year it might well be the first day of rebuilding Masbate’s fragile infrastructure for the second time in less than a month. We literally got our Globe service restored after Tisoy yesterday afternoon!!

Everything closes at signal 1 so what's signal 2 mean?
