A thoughtful article about Sinulog and the Cebuano heritage. For now, I could not say it any better, so, I redirect you to Mr. Bong Wenceslao’s January 15, 2009 entry of his column Candid Thoughts: Sinulog and Old Cebu.
True true, in the way we celebrate Sinulog, it seems that life began only when we were colonized by the Spanish people. Whew…with this thought alone, it is no wonder we could not get away from colonial mentality and lost identity. Or is it because of the commercialization of the festival that we are also losing the point of the celebration? Then again, this is to speak of the cultural and historical point of view, nothing against Christianity being instituted in Cebu.
