One week before Christmas day, and you can already feel the Yuletide spirit all around.
Walking from Ayala-Paseo to my office, I smile when I see people carrying gift-wrapped boxes and gift baskets, and people in costumes going to their party venues.
The COD display is already doing its hourly runs at Greenhills, which at an early hour is already packed with people. Divisoria, too.
Back at home, my grandma’s room looked like Santa’s elves worked there for a night. Goodie baskets are arranged in one corner, one for each of her children (and families). A few gifts are stacked in another corner, for her apos sa tuhod.
I’ve just done Christmas shopping for my family, hubby’s family and our nephews and nieces. Only our moms don’t have gifts yet — every year it gets challenging, what to give them for the Holidays…
Hubby’s gift for me is sitting on top of the cabinet in our apartment. No peeking, no shaking. Hmm.
Hubby’s gift from me is in my cabinet over at my parents house. Still unwrapped, as I plan to add something to it. Mom has already told me she could wrap it for me, but I could wrap it myself during the family Christmas party on Sunday.
Which reminds me, we still don’t have something for the White Elephant game.
The weather is getting colder by the day. The temperature outside is like the temperature inside the malls.
The only thing missing are the Ray Conniff Singers piping through the speakers here in the office.
I love Christmas. I feel like a kid again, every year. 😀
