In Alfonso, Sanghiyang is a cultic custom preliminary to the ceremony of Ancestral Offering, Mediumistic Healing, Ritual House Blessing Basang-Gilagid, and Dance on Fire Sayaw sa Apoy. As supported by Alejandro Roces," it used to be a Pagan ceremony yet was later saturated with Christian implications and scriptural defenses" as it is guaranteed to be a hang over of Noah's putting forth of Thanksgiving after the Universal Deluge. As a prelude to the Thanksgiving Ritual Sanghiyang is generally performed during the long stretch of January by ious families.
There used to be such a large number of magsasanghiyang who can play out the custom however a considerable lot of them have as of now kicked the bucket and just a modest bunch of their relatives acquired the capacity to do the custom. In each Sanghiyang custom there is dependably an altares where they orchestrate statues of Saints, Angels and the executed Christ together with whatever religious symbols they can at present include. An exceptionally attractive offering are the Tau-tauhan bread rolls of 7 tao, 7 kabayo and 7 kumpay. These are for the elementals which are for the most part spoken to by the 7 dwarves.
