Boodle Fight

One of the exciting activities during intramurals night was the “BOODLE FIGHT.” A boodle fight is a Filipino tradition of eating originated from the Philippine military where the big pile of food is served in the middle of a really long table in a mess hall where every hungry soldier eats with their hands. Hence, it is the tradition of The Holy Child College of Davao to have a boodle fight as part of the intramurals highlights every year. During the last night of intramurals last October 1, of this year, everyone was amazed of those long tables that were laden with banana leaves which were full of delicious foods (rice, lechon, viands, fruits, and deserts). It was really fun as all students, teachers, and visitors, were grabbing the food and eating hurriedly without the use of any utensils. Those hungry acts, sweet smiles, and happy faces while eating and grabbing different foods strengthen camaraderie, sportsmanship, and harmony in the school. Thus, it was way more exciting than expected.
