Christmas is fast approaching.... and I'm terribly missing the symbols of Christmas. This is the season of the year that I truly miss the Philippines. I remember the last time when I was still working there and staying in my own house...I can feel the Christmas spirit all around the corner. Truly, Christmas is the happiest time of the year, well..at least for the Filipinos. What I miss this Christmas??
Let me count :
1.) Bibingka and Puto Bumbong
2.) Simbang Gabi
3.) Christmas Carols
5.) "Monito - Monita"
6.) "Parol" (Christmas Lanterns)
7.) Christmas Tree
8.) Christmas Parties
9.) Exchange Gifts
10.)Hamon and Queso De Bola
and the list goes on and on....
Anyway...what were mentioned are just only symbols to remind us that it's going to be Christmas soon, but more importantly, it's remembering the birth of Jesus Christ and thanking HIM for all the blessings and joys HE had given us all these years. The fact that we are alive, healthy, earning, productive and loved are far more important than having all of the above. :) Have a Blessed Christmas!!!
