The Philippines offers a wealth of entertainment, from classical plays to cultural shows and show bands. The people like to celebrate life and their festive spirit is renowned.

According to this context, what word is suitable for the question "What kind of people are the Fillipinos?" My opinion is "the people of festivals". Is the usage "the people of festivels" correct with the context?


For me, 'people of festivals' conjures up an image of the people who make a festival come together - the organisers, people who run food stands and such.

I'd use the same adjective found in the original text - festive - and describe them as a festive people.
