   “Pakaradyan is a Maguindanaon term for festivity often held with a kanduli (thanksgiving) accompanied by a celebratory Pagana (feast) which may come as a Kagkawing (wedding celebration), Qadtamat (Qur’an reading), Tanda (baptismal rite), Salangguni (pamanhikan), Kadsalam (circumcision), Kapanggaygayan (gathering in respect of the death of a loved one), Eid’l Fitr (end of Ramadan), Eid’l Adha (Hadji pilgrimage festival), and the likes. Its equivalent to non-Maguindanaons would be any Filipino fiesta celebration, and elaborate meal attended by many guests, often held in honor of a particular occasion.”
