Christmas is my favorite season of the year. In the Philippines, the excitement usually begins as early as September. It’s true, most of my folks in this country love preparing for the long holidays. What’s not to love about Christmas, anyway? For Christians all over the world, it is the time to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
In my own family, we look forward for December 25 to have a big reunion every year. We exchange gifts, play games, and eat a lot of food. The kids also fall in line to receive their favors from the elderlies. Since I’ve grown up, I can no longer join and this is what I miss the most. Most importantly, we meet altogether to seek for guidance from the Lord. We usually start our program with a prayer.
