Alright, I must admit that I am missing the Pinoy version of celebrating Christmas. The Misa de Gallo or Simbang Gabi for 9 days starting on December 16. I miss waking up around 3:30AM and get ready for church around 4AM. Of course it was a struggle but I made it. Next thing, I miss Christmas party. From Elementary to High School, I never missed Christmas party in school, the exchange gifts and the food that we shared was fun.
You must remember that "Until one feels the spirit of Christmas, there is no Christmas. All else is outward display-so much tinsel and decorations. For it isn't the holly, it isn't the snow. It isn't the tree not the firelight's glow. It's the warmth that comes to the hearts of men when the Christmas spirit returns again."
I miss celebrating Christmas with my family and friends back home. I miss my motther's cooking. I miss her kisses and caring love to me. It will be 3 consecutive 3 years of missing Christmas celebration with them,. Nobody can beat Pinoy version of celebrating Christmas. I wish I am home. Thank you Anne - My Little Home for tagging me.
