Waking up at the melancholic pitter-patter of raindrops on my window reminds me that Christmas is in the air. Unlike in the West, we never get to experience the delightful surprise of snow every time we go out. Instead, it is usually a light drizzle of rain or simply the chilly December air that greet us Filipinos in the morning.
As I went to the window to see if the rain has stopped and of course to contemplate a little about life, I could not help but think of how will I celebrate this year’s Christmas.
I believe that personal as well as financial preparations must be done. I think of the clothes I should wear during our family gathering on Christmas eve, the various presents which I can get from the Vitamin Shoppe, and of course the food I should prepare. A sudden jolt of excitement radiated through my system as I imagine all the good stuff I get to make. Traditional dishes will fill our table. Hot chocolate also known as sikwate will also be made available and, one must not forget, the Christmas wine–which is available at Wine.com and comes with a Groupon Coupons–to complement the holiday feast.
Now the rain had stopped and the sun is making its way through the clouds again. Unexpectedly, this early morning contemplation turned out to be a thorough planning. Then again, I have come to realize that it is not only about how extravagant your presents are or how fancy your holiday feast would be but sharing and giving love as well, not just this season but all throughout the year.
