Like most Filipino families, we, too, observe some Christmas family traditions every year. One of those traditions has something to do with food. Each year, we make sure we have Christmas ham served during Noche Buena. Yesterday, hubby brought home Purefoods Fiesta Ham that we simply had to try for our midnight snacks last night.
Another family tradition during Christmas is giving gifts. Every Christmas, I make it a point to prepare gifts for each member of the family. Christmas is the time of the year that I can play Santa to others. This is actually a tradition that started when I began earning my own money and was inspired by a dear aunt who played Santa during Christmas to us when we were young and until now. A good portion of my 13th month pay is spent on buying Christmas presents for those people on my list.
And of course, Christmas is celebrating with those we love. In a few hours, we will be heading to my parents’ place in Dasmariñas, Cavite to spend Christmas with them. My son is already excited to see his grandparents, aunts and uncles and cousins, and most of all, the gifts he would receive from them. LOL!
Christmas is really the season to be jolly, so I’ll forget about work and car insurance rate today and tomorrow. Is that okay, Boss?
Have a Merry Christmas, everyone!
