Kraft Eden Cheese aimed to bring back the joy and faith of Filipinos during this festive occasion. The well-loved cheese brand launched the Keso de Gallo - a nationwide event coinciding with the traditionally celebrated Misa de Gallo (a Catholic Christmas tradition wherein nine dawn masses are held starting December 16, which will culminate on Christmas Eve).
Parallel to the nine-day Simbang Gabi, Eden brought the goodness of Filipino dishes to Pinoys in nine different towns including Bacolod City, Iloilo, Davao, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu City, Naga, Butuan City, Laoag and Pampanga.
At least 300 “kabalens” enjoyed the “Cheesy Squash Puto” a recipe done by pupils from the San Matias Elementary School in Pampanga.

This Christmas I had the chance to connect to the roots of my DAD this Christmas. Attending mass said in Kapampangan dialect and reminiscing the culture and traditions of Kapampangan during Christmas. How I wish I were fluent in the dialect.
Thanks to Kraft Eden Cheese, and Keso de Gallo, I felt my Christmas was complete. The Keso de Gallo in San Guillermo Parish Church in Bacolor Pampanga event will be in our memories for a long time.
The Keso de Gallo experience was our topic during the family gathering we had on Christmas Day.
