MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!!
This year is different from the past Christmases we had, for one thing we're both far from our families. Though it's a quiet christmas for us, I am thankful we're together and that's what matters most!
At this time in Pinas at my parents house, christmas song is blasting from their karaoke. Godchildren started the pamamasko and must be at our door-step asking for their aguinaldos. For sure Ma's busy preparing food for the visitors and Pa can't get over entertaining them. Brother's must be in the corner eating quietly, or must be out with their friends.
Ten hours from now it will be christmas day in the US too. Mom will be busy preparing her christmas tradition 'oyster stew and puff-bread'. After indulging from a hearty meal and opening gifts, dad will start his christmas story - Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree. This christmas story has been a tradition in their family, always been part of L's christmas as far as he can remember. I thought he'll never hear about him this year since we're here in Korea but he came!
Enjoy the Holidays everyone! see you in January :)
