Hear the bells ringing and the music playing and you’ll feel Christmas in the air. The months that ends with “BER” is also the start of the Christmas season here in the Philippines. It is said that Christmas celebration here is the longest in the whole world. Yes, you’ll begin to feel it as eraly as the month of September. Christmas jingles are played on radios, T.V. commercials with Christmas promos are aired already. And you can see Christmas decors displayed in Department stores. People will begin to make a list of what they’re going to buy and grab any store sales for cheaper items to be included in their gifts (pasalubong). Children too are getting excited looking forward to the vacation, the parties and the gifts they will receive.
Simple joys of spending a quality time with our love ones is what I’m looking forward during these day. Christmas is one special occasion in doing it. Yes, Christmas in everywhere and we must not forget that it can be celebrated everyday too. We must not forget the real essence of it as we remember to share love even to those who don’t deserve it. Yes…loving, forgiving, and sharing are important ingredients of life we all must use in order for Christmas to be so real everyday in our lives
