The holidays always get to me.
One reason I don’t go on Facebook as often around these dates is that I feel the little green monster called Envy creep up and bite me on the backside. Most of the people I know who are also overseas are back in Manila to spend the Christmas holidays. I want to be home as well!!! If I were Dorothy Gale and I had the ruby slippers, I’d be clicking my heels away and wishing that I was home too!
Christmas is so different in the Philippines. But I think what makes Christmas is the feeling of belonging that is always present because you are with family and friends. I don’t mind the stress that comes with being too busy at Christmas. Because all that hyperactivity on the run up to the big day is worth it.
I keep telling myself that soon I can do Christmas at home too. Soon and very soon! Fingers crossed!
