Happy Holidays! I hope you are all doing well.
As many of you may know, Christmas in the Philippines is celebrated longer than other countries.
As soon as September Kicked off, you could already hear Christmas songs everywhere ( insert Jose MariChan here).
Now, as Christmas is approaching, we are all busy attending parties, family reunions, kris kringle and other merriment.
I have done wrapping all my presents. For a couple of years, I recycled brown bags to make the gifts more sustainable. However, I recently moved to a new place and I was unable to keep all brown bags that I was supposed to be using for this season. So, I decided to still go simple by replacing brown bag with Manila paper and ofcourse, red ribbon. This is way cheaper than Christmas wrappers. Plus, I put effort decorating the gift to make it more personalized.
Next week, we will start planning for Christmas food.
Since I work at night, I am unable to attend “Simbang Gabi” or dawn mass.
What about you, what preparations are you doing? How will you spend your Holidays?
However you want to celebrate, may we all remember the REAL reason for this season!
