Got annoyed again by last minute Christmas shopping. Come to think of it, it was the only instance that I had the chance to shop for gifts this year.
Rummaging through the stores I kept telling myself, “It will be better next year, I’ll really plan on how to do this.” Yeah right.
I got away with free dinners as presents for some.
Our Family’s Christmas Traditions (Though I guess this is also the same with other families out there):
- Chicken Salad
- Buko Salad
- Keso de Bola
- Leche Flan
- Ignoring the carollers (hehehe our parents have successfully passed that on to us – they always whined on how “poor” their performances are
- Family Pictures – see above
- Rolling on the floor laughing while dissing the family pictures – quicker this time due to technological advances
- Gift giving
- Sleeping at 4 in the morning (movie marathon, eating, talking, eating, singing, eating) and having to wake up at 7 or 8 because you need to attend more reunions this time!
As I have grown tired of having #1 to #5, I have proposed of having something else for next year. When they turned to me to ask what should we be having instead, I said “same”.
