It's December 1st Already!

Saturday, December 01, 2012

With just a wink of an eye, it's almost Christmas. Today is the first day of December, and 24 days from's Christmas!

The spirit of the season hasn't touch me yet. maybe it's the weather. it feels like summer these days. Nothing of the usual cold breeze we felt when the 'Ber-months' enter. Or maybe because Christmas decors are very rare in our place nowadays. Even on our own house we don't have a  single Christmas decor. No trees, no lanterns, no Christmas lights. Just us, anticipating the coming holiday.

Does this post makes you feel like reading a note from the Grinch? My apologies. Please don't get me wrong, I love Christmas. I enjoyed giving gifts to my love ones. I love seeing their eyes shine as tehy open their presents. And I love the foods. I am looking forward with what we are deciding to cook for the Christmas eve. Most importantly, I love accepting gifts on Christmas day. However small or inexpensive the gifts are I appreciate it wholeheartedly. As the saying goes 'It's the thought that counts'. It's an overwhelming feeling when you realize that some people bother to think of something to give to you. It feels like they are giving a part of them to you.

We may not have Christmas decors scattered around our place, but I believe that when the Christmas eve approaches everything will transform. Like magic! However hot we may be feeling because of the weather, we would still feel the cold Christmas breeze coming. And though times are difficult that we don't have enough money  to spend for Christmas, we could make the spirit alive by exchanging smiles and greetings. In the end, what only matters is that we thank the Lord for everything He has given us. And for the friends and families that will always love us and will never leave our side.

So let me greet you a very Merry Christmas. Hope you will be surrounded with love and blessings this holiday season.
