It's that time of the year again


Christmas will always be my favorite time of the year. It's the time for early morning walks to the church for Simbang Gabi; I can already hear the bell tolling at 4 AM as if it's an alarm clock reminding the neighborhood of the gathering that's about to happen, the Christmas carols that play from the bell tower until mass starts, and the early morning bustle in the streets. You walk with your hands hands inside your pockets because the holiday winds get a bit chilly during those hours. And, right after the mass, the bakeries start to open and you can almost taste the newly cooked bread just from the scent that lingers through the air. It's also time for hot cocoa with my family in the living room and fancy dinners with my best friends, followed by an always anticipated gift giving. It's that time of the year again, and I cannot be more glad.
