24 days from now, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, be thankful for the blessings that He gave us. we’re preparing the Christmas season ahead of time. We’re the only one celebrate it til Three Kings in January.
As early as September, some of us haggling and buying Christmas gifts to our loveones and to our inaanaks. They always say that having an advance Christmas shopping is better, because it saves time and worry-free. And also, the price is cheaper than buying last minute shopping during the Holiday season.
Radio stations played Christmas songs and countdown begins when the Ber month starts.
Some people decorate Christmas-theme ornaments when the month of November came in.
As you notice, as early as first week of December, kids roaming the streets visiting every houses and sings Christmas carols until the 25th of December.
Eating delectable Puto Bumbong, Bibingka and other sweet Pinoy delicasies scattered near the church, after an hour Midnight mass. And completing Simbang Gabi for 9 days…one of my favorite activities during the season. Wishing for one thing during the 9 days is true. My wish granted two years ago when I got my job in a BPO company in Makati.
One thing that I like ever since celebrating Christmas is sharing your blessing by giving gifts for those people you love and care. And don’t forget the Noche Buena…it’s a rare thing to gather your loveones for the season of love and sharing.
