The Philippines has earned the distinction of celebrating the world’s longest Christmas season. With the songs of Jose Mari Chan signaling the start of the season as early as the first day of September. And just like Christmas Carols, Simbang Gabi, Noche Buena, there are some Holiday traditions that we simply cant do without, and for coffee fanatics the season wouldn’t be complete without completing their sticker cards to claim their Starbucks Planner!

So if you’re like me whose coffee/tea consumption doubles during the frantic holiday rush here’s a peek of what the 2016 planner looks like and more importantly  how you can get yours and be the one to shout- FIRST!
