We are often asked how we celebrate Christmas. For us, the Filipino Christmas is all about the family and the kids 🙂 It’s a season of get together and extra happiness for the kids.
I like to share with you a glimpse of what we did last Christmas and New Year celebration…
We would meet for a Christmas Lunch on December 24 at their ancestral home in Sta. Mesa. Then the eve of December 25 is reserved for Christmas celebration for each family.
Then on New Year’s Eve, our family would usually go out of town — usually Tagaytay, to escape the fireworks and the smog in Manila. This year was a bit special because both of our parents joined us for our New Year’s Escape.
Then on January 1, we would hear a solemn and blessed mass together to welcome the new year 🙂
Live an Awesome Life,
P.S. On my end, I come from a family of 3 boys and my brothers are in the US now.
