I am..hella late with posting this weeks 52 Week Blog Challenge. This weeks prompt is your favorite holiday. It’s no secret my favorite holiday would definitely have to be Christmas.
The Christmas season always puts a warm feeling in my heart. And that fuzzy feeling i get starts The day after Halloween. Yup, i am one of those people and im not ashamed to say it. LOL. I love how traditions you had as a child are passed down to your children. And as your family grows you make new traditions along the way.
Some of traditions i like to do around the holiday season is making gingerbread houses together and making our own garlands. I like to see the kids creativity develop over the years and watching them work together in perfect harmony makes my heart so full.
I also let them pick the theme/colors of the tree and make them take 693482043 pictures in front of it so i can blast it all over social media.
And i think the best part about holiday season is that everyone comes home for christmas. We all get so caught up with life, work, school and whatever else, we sometimes forget to make time for each other. Shit, sometimes we even forget to call. Once everyone is under the same roof, work and school no longer matter, the air is filled with love, the drinks start pouring, and when you look around, everyone has picked up right where they left of. And to me, it is in those moments i start to reflect and think how truly blessed i am. That is why christmas is my favorite holiday.
I’ll leave you guys with a Vlogmas video i made during noche buena 2016. Just a glimpse of how Christmas is like with our family.
I know, thats a lot of people. LOL. Almost all my mommys siblings, all my first cousins and our families. What can i say, filipinos can reproduce. haha. What is your favorite holiday? Until then love bugs, Shanti shanti!
