2 days to go before Christmas!
I love Christmas. It’s the time of the year where you get to spend with your family, eat sinful but delicious food, rest, sleep, and you know, share the love!
For me, I get to share the love through gifts. I’m not someone who gives expensive gifts to a lot of people. But even if it’s cheap, I make sure I gift-wrap every one of them. To be honest, I think I gave a few gifts before in a paper bag. I am not proud, but I think I was too busy back then to gift-wrap everything. But this year’s Christmas is different.
I was really excited to lay out the bright and colorful papers, hear the crisp sound of sharp scissors cutting through the paper, re-arranging the gift in a perfect manner and sealing them all with a kiss… err card.
I even volunteered to wrap a few of my friends’ (and family’s) gifts just for fun!
I believe that Christmas is the time of the year wherein it’s okay to be mushy. Your emotions are heightened and you tend to appreciate every little stuff you see/give/receive. Every ribbon, every bow, every candy or chocolates I receive, I go: Awwww, shux. Thanks! For every house/tree/plant/building with Christmas lights, I go: Wow, how nice!
It’s the time of the year where you get to look back and appreciate all the blessings, as well as the good and bad experiences you had for the past year. It’s the time of the year where we all get to rejoice and be merry for everything life has to offer us.
Do you feel the same way? 🙂
Merry Christmas everyone!
P.S.I can’t wait for Noche Buena!
