Christmas preparations already started in September over here. That means there are holiday lights (usually with lose contact) and stars made of 7up bottles all along the streets. I think I already mentioned how I found the decoration terribly tasteless. So even after the busiest christmas party marathon – I think I went to 5 parties in 3 days – I couldn’t really get into the spirit. But how could I possibly with these temperatures outside? Christmas eve itself, I spend at a family house in the village. We followed the traditional filipino program: 11pm mass, a huge dinner afterwards and then the gift giving after 12pm on the 25th. The whole day/night was very nice. Even though nobody dared to try my german potato salad, the kids were keen about the UNO cards game and the german milka chocolate 🙂
The holidays after are very quite. Everyone stays with their family. We are expecting another typhoon tonight though… Malipayon nga paskua everyone and take care!
