The ordinary Bikolano is deeply religious. Although the region is predominantly a Christian where the majority embrace the Catholic faith, its characteristics discomforts towards institutions and authority resulted in the flowering peculiar expressions of their faith.
Another patent expression of a distinctive Bicolano trait is his extreme personalism. For him there is no separation between an objective task and emotional involvement.
Bicolano is his sociability and warm friendship . Bikolanos are rated best in friendliness. This sociability is manifested during social celebrations and local fiestas. His typical way of socialization is thru drinking. It is because in drinking that discussions and camaraderie are established with lesser inhibitions and formality. This earned them the repute of being hospitable. CHARACTERS OF THE BICOLANO LITERARY ARTS
The literature of Bikol is primarily composed of mga osipon, tigsik, and rawit-dawit. In the 90's a fragment of the Bikol folk epic was published and made popular by Dr Merito Espinas which the entire region celebrate with the Ibalong Festivalevery October when a cultural street dance is presented en route the city's main thoroughfares. Paracale, "the golden country" in Camarines Norte, has grown to be the center of jewelry-making tradition.
The art of abaca weaving has been long developed in Albay and Camarines Sur, although the art as given way to commerce in what has become a lucrative industry. The weaving of traditional textiles of cotton is still found in a few towns of Bicol, notably Buhi, Camarines Sur. VISUAL ARTS AND CRAFTS Tigsik is a form of literature in the Bicol region of the Philippines. This kind of literacy is somehow similar to Haiku of Japan. Before, Tigsik is only used for mere enjoyment especially for momentous and festive occasions of the natives, some of it are hilarious pieces which contains perverted content but when you understand it further there is another meaning to it that imposes knowledge and values. Nowadays, if you ask somebody from Bicol if they know what Tigsik is, some of them probably don't know what it is because through the ages the descendants of the bicolanos has been poor in passing out the legacy of their own literacy. BICOL'S literary world is entering a “renaissance” period as new books and other works emerge due to growing writers' interest and access to publishing houses.
