The Lanzones fruit is a major source of the Camiguin Islands’ livelihood and it is for the annual harvest that they celebrate this thanksgiving day. Houses, carriages, street poles and even people are decorated with lanzones and lanzones leaves. Townsfolk dance in joy abandon in commemoration of the legend that a beautiful, unknown maiden took from the its former bitter flavor to leave only its luscious, sweet taste. Camiguin, which came from the word Kamagong, the name of a tree in the ebony family, is a pear-shaped volcanic island lying in the Bohol Sea some 54 kilometers southeast of Chocolate Hills and 10 kilometers north of Misamis Oriental.
Well, I’m just giving you insight on how beautiful it is to live in the place where we were born and raised – Mindanao.
