Our tree is up...


The last quarter of the year was marked with significant challenges, the bigger ones being the 7.2 magnitude temblor last October 15 and the category 5 super typhoon Haiyan / Yolanda last November 8.  Despite the calamities we experienced one after the other, the uncertainty of things and the seemingly tough times in the horizon, we won't be skipping Christmas.  In place of the wild merrymaking, the shopping beyond reasonable limits, and the ostentatious display of food and material things, we'll have a somber celebration instead...  


Our fellow Filipinos lost so much, almost everything, their pain is unimaginable.  In solidarity with them, our Christmas will be subdued, quiet and reflective.  It will be different but definitely more meaningful this year.

  2. This reminds we need to set up of Christmas Tree too and also the lights. Anyway, we Filipinos celebrate Christmas even in difficult times. Because Jesus Christ is our savior and our hope.
