For the past 10 years, Christmas has never been complete for me since Nanay passed away. So here are the top 10 things I miss during Christmas celebration:
- Nanay’s Spaghetti (which I try hard to remake every time I cook spaghetti)
- Ube jam
- Crispy pata
- Candies and other sweets we give out to kids every Christmas day
- Warm bibingka and puto bumbong after Simbang Gabi
- Doing Christmas decorations whether in the house or at school
This year, I decided not to expect any gifts at all although I need and want a lot of things. Expecting something too much is just so disappointing.
And yes, I’m going to spend Christmas with my Aunts, Cousins and hopefully my brother after a very loooooong time. It’s going to be a blast!
